UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery used to power a computer or a server to avoid the loss of information when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the constant operation of all the web servers located there. Since the UPS operates all the time, it provides the desired power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is a must for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a shared web hosting account with our company, you will be able to forget about troubles caused by electrical power failures, due to the fact that, unlike many other providers, we do not keep multiple servers attached to just one UPS. Rather, each and every web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device that will keep it up and running for many hours. Also, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and which can easily power all the web servers for an extensive amount of time. That way, the overall performance of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all of the time.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network which handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to every machine to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to offer electrical power for the whole center for many hours without having to restrict the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even in the event that there is an outage, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be available without any interruptions and will operate at top speed.
