The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server functional in case there are troubles with the main power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the power network all the time, so if there is any disruption, it is already operating, which enables the web server to continue operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS which provides that time. These 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we offer shared hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your sites, it will be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Every machine in the selected cluster offers its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire data center to stay working for many hours. You won't notice anything even if there's a disruption, as our backup units can power all of the devices and we will not need to limit the total number of working web servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your Internet sites.
