UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate running of the web servers located in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can give you the necessary electric power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your websites inside a cloud web hosting account with our company, you can forget about issues caused by electrical power outages, simply because, different from many other providers, we don't keep many hosting servers attached to just one UPS. Alternatively, every server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit which can easily keep it operational for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators that boot up for minutes and that are able to power each of the web 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 hosting service at all times.

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

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an independent UPS for every single server or network switch located there to ensure that the correct operation of any device will not be disturbed until powerful generators start supplying the needed electrical power. The latter will be able to power the whole data center for a very long time without the need to turn off any machines, so all the Internet sites hosted on our web servers will continue to work at max speed and with zero effect on their efficiency. These electric power backup options allow us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
