UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a server to avoid the loss of information in case the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the continuous running of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works constantly, it provides the required power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is vital for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a web hosting account with our company, you will be able to forget about problems caused by electric power outages, due to the fact that, unlike many other providers, we do not keep multiple servers attached to just one UPS. Instead, each and every machine that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device that will keep it working for a long time. Also, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators which boot up for minutes and that can easily power all of the web servers for an extensive time period. That way, the overall performance of your websites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all of the time.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our advanced web hosting platform and the network that addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to provide electrical power for the entire facility for a long time without having to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even if there is an outage, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no interruptions and will function at top speed.
