UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their role and why are they available in data centers worldwide?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting companies inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the correct operation of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the needed electric power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty that we provide you with is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in every of the three data centers in which we offer website hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a modern cloud platform that consists of several clusters controlling your content. Each and every web server within the specific cluster offers its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole data center to be working for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even in case there's an outage, as our backup units can easily power all the devices and we won't need to restrict the amount of working hosting servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an individual UPS for each and every web server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper operation of any device won't be disturbed until efficient generators start providing the necessary electrical power. The latter can easily power the entire center for quite a long time with no need to turn off any machines, so all of the Internet sites hosted on our servers will continue to function at max speed and with no effect on their overall performance. These power backup options permit us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
