UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their function and why are they available in data center facilities all around the globe?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting companies within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the servers located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can give you the needed energy to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In the event of 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.

If you host your sites inside a shared hosting
account with us, you will be able to forget about problems caused by power outages, due to the fact that, unlike all kinds of other providers, we don't keep many hosting servers attached to only one UPS. Rather, each machine which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS unit which can keep it functioning for many hours. Furthermore, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have numerous generators that boot up for minutes and that will be able to power all the web servers for an extensive amount of time. This way, the performance of your sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service constantly.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have taken all measures to prevent any service disruptions caused by a power disruption, so if you use a semi-dedicated server
account for your Internet sites, you'll enjoy a fast and secure website hosting service consistently. Each hosting server that's part of our customized platform has an independent UPS to keep it functional until several effective enterprise-class diesel generators take over to provide the necessary electricity for all of the units for so long as required. The latter are effective enough to have everything functioning at top capacity, so we'll not have to shut down any hosting servers or to use fewer network devices, which could reduce the loading speed of your websites or affect their performance. This top-notch power setup is among the reasons behind our 99.9% server and network uptime guarantee, that is valid for all semi-dedicated solutions that we are offering.
