The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server operational in case there are difficulties with the primary power source - an interruption or shaky current which cannot keep the web server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, an effective battery that is connected to the web server and to the electric power network all the time, so in the case of any interruption, it is already functioning, which enables the server to carry on working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS that provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites within a cloud website hosting account with our company, you'll be able to forget about problems caused by power failures, due to the fact that, different from various other providers, we do not keep many different servers attached to only one UPS. Rather, each server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device that will keep it up and running for hours. Moreover, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and which are able to power all the web servers for an extensive period of time. In this way, the features of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all of the time.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our advanced web hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to offer electricity for the whole facility for many hours without having to limit the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even in case there is a disruption, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disruptions and will perform at top speed.
