UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power a computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of data in case the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the continuous functioning of all the web servers located there. Since the UPS operates all the time, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

We offer you cloud website hosting plans in three of the largest sized data centers worldwide. They are located in the United States, in the UK and in Australia. Given that data integrity and web server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have a number of backup systems against electric power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the servers functional for hours or even for several days and each machine that's part of our cutting-edge cloud platform includes its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational until the generators begin working. This setup is amongst the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% server and network uptime, so if you host your web sites inside a shared account with our company, you'll take full advantage of a fast and flawless service without having to worry about any disturbances due to electric power outages.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers that are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network that manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to every single web server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to provide electric power for the entire center for many hours with no need to reduce the power consumption or the overall performance 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 interruptions and will work at top speed.
