UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting companies inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate running of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can supply the needed power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
If you buy a shared hosting package from us, you will never need to worry about possible electric power blackouts causing the loss of precious information, even if you host important sites on our servers. All the machines that are part of our innovative cluster platform use highly effective UPSs which can keep them operational for a long stretch of time - more than sufficient for several diesel generators to begin functioning and take over. The latter are effective enough to keep all the 3 facilities entirely functional for a number of hours and without any restrictions, so your websites will continue to function correctly and with no delays or limitations. The power backup is one of the factors behind our 99.9% service uptime guarantee.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer you are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers that are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network which addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to every single server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to offer electric power for the entire facility for many hours without the need to reduce the power consumption or the overall performance of any web server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available without disturbances and will function at top speed.
