UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power a computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the consistent running of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs all the time, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is essential for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it gives them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting

We offer website hosting plans in 3 of the largest sized data centers throughout the world. They're located in the USA, in the United kingdom and in Australia. Because data protection and web server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have numerous backup systems against power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the servers functional for hours or even for several days and every machine which is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform features its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it functional until the generators start working. This setup is one of the reasons why you can easily promise a 99.9% web server and network uptime, so if you host your websites within a shared account with us, you'll benefit from a fast and outstanding service without worrying about any interruptions due to electrical power outages.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network that manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to every hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to offer electrical power for the whole center for a long time without having to limit the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even in case there is a blackout, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available without any disturbances and will perform at top speed.
