UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery that is used to power a computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of data in case the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the continuous running of all of the web servers located there. As the UPS runs all the time, it offers the necessary power for the servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it offers them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we provide is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters dealing with your content. Every web server within the given cluster has its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire facility to be operational for many hours. You will not notice anything even in the event there's a disruption, as our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we won't need to limit the total number of working servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a separate UPS for every single server or network switch located there to ensure that the ideal operation of any device shall not be interrupted until powerful generators start supplying the required electrical power. The latter can power the entire data center for quite a long time without having to turn off any machines, so all the sites hosted on our machines shall continue to operate at optimum speed and with no effect on their capabilities. These electric power backup options enable us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
