The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server operational in case there are problems with the primary power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an effective battery that is connected to the hosting server and to the power network at all times, so in case there is any blackout, it's already working, that permits the web server to carry on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide cloud website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to build or move your sites, it will be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters handling your content. Every machine within the given cluster features its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole facility to stay working for several hours. You will not notice anything even when there's an interruption, because our backup units can easily power all the devices and we will not need to restrict the amount of working hosting servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your sites.
