UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper operation of the servers situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can give you the needed energy to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites within a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to forget about problems caused by electric power outages, simply because, different from all kinds of other providers, we don't keep many different hosting servers attached to just one UPS. Instead, each and every hosting server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS device which will keep it up and running for many hours. 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 each of the hosting servers for an extensive time period. This way, the performance of your sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service constantly.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our sophisticated website hosting platform and the network which manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each and every hosting server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to offer electric power for the whole facility for many hours without the need to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no interruptions and will perform at top speed.
