UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the proper running of the servers located inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can supply the necessary electrical power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the required 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 Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we offer is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in every of the three data centers in which we offer hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it will be set up on a modern cloud platform that consists of several clusters controlling your content. Every single machine in the given cluster has its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire facility to remain working for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even when there's an outage, as our backup units will power all of the devices and we will not have to restrict the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your websites.
