UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery used to power a computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of info if the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of all of the web servers located there. Because the UPS runs all the time, it offers the necessary power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, because it offers them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your sites within a shared web hosting account with us, you can forget about complications caused by electric power outages, due to the fact that, unlike many other providers, we do not keep many web servers attached to only one UPS. Instead, each individual machine that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which can easily keep it functioning for hours. Furthermore, our data centers in the USA, in the UK and in Australia have multiple generators that boot up for minutes and that can easily power all of the servers for an extensive amount of time. That way, the functionality of your Internet sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service constantly.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an individual UPS for each and every web server or network switch located there to make sure that the correct functioning of any piece of equipment will not be disrupted until effective generators start producing the required electric power. The latter can power the whole data center for a very long time with no need to shut down any equipment, so each of the Internet sites hosted on our machines shall continue to function at top speed and with no effect on their overall performance. These power backup options permit us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
