UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct operation of the servers situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can deliver the required energy to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

We offer shared hosting plans in three of the largest sized data centers globally. They're located in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia. Since data security and web server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have a number of backup systems against electrical power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the web servers working for hours or even for a few days and each and every machine that's part of our cutting-edge cloud platform provides its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it functional until the generators start working. This setup is one of the reasons why you can easily promise a 99.9% web server and network uptime, so if you host your Internet sites inside a shared account with us, you will benefit from a fast and outstanding service without having to worry about any disturbances due to power outages.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer you are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our sophisticated hosting platform and the network that handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to each server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to deliver electric power for the entire data center for many hours without the need to restrict the power consumption or the overall performance of any web server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all of the sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without any disruptions and will operate at top speed.
