UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power your personal computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of information when the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. 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 functioning of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works all the time, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your websites within a cloud website hosting account with us, you will be able to forget about issues caused by power blackouts, since, different from many other providers, we do not keep several servers attached to only one UPS. Rather, every machine which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS device which can easily keep it operational for many hours. In addition, our data centers in the USA, in the UK and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and that are able to power all the servers for an extensive stretch of time. That way, the performance of your Internet sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service all of the time.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it will be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a different UPS for every single hosting server or network switch located there to make certain that the correct operation of any piece of equipment will not be disrupted until effective generators start producing the needed electricity. The latter will be able to power the entire facility for quite a while without having to shut down any devices, so each of the Internet sites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to work at max speed and without any effect on their performance. These power backup options permit us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
