UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the machines based in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide you with the necessary energy to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we offer you is, somewhat, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it shall be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Every web server in the given cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole center to stay functional for several hours. You'll not notice anything even when there is an outage, since our backup units can easily power all of the devices and we shall not have to restrict the number of working web servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your Internet sites.
