UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper operation of the servers located within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can provide the required electric power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting account with us, you'll be able to forget about issues caused by electric power blackouts, since, unlike all kinds of other providers, we don't keep several servers attached to a single UPS. Instead, every hosting server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS unit that shall be able to keep it working for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the United States, in the UK and in Australia have numerous generators which boot up for minutes and which can power all the web servers for an extensive stretch of time. That way, the performance of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service at all times.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide you with are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers that are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network that addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to each hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to offer electric power for the whole center for many hours with no need to reduce 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 sites hosted on our platform will still be available without any interruptions and will work at top speed.
