UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting companies in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to support the correct operation of the servers based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers consistently, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can give you the required power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

We offer cloud website hosting plans in 3 of the biggest data centers throughout the world. They're based in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia. Due to the fact that data integrity and web server uptime are our priorities, all 3 facilities have a few backup systems against electrical power outages. Several diesel generators can keep the servers functional for hours or even for several days and every machine which is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform includes its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it working until the generators kick in. This setup is one of the reasons why we can ensure a 99.9% hosting server and network uptime, so if you host your websites within a shared account with our company, you'll benefit from a fast and outstanding service and never having to worry about any disruptions due to electric power outages.

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

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a separate UPS for every single web server or network switch located there to make sure that the ideal operation of any device will not be disturbed until effective generators start providing the needed electrical power. The latter can easily power the entire center for a very long time without the need to shut down any equipment, so all the sites hosted on our servers will continue to function at max speed and without any effect on their performance. These electric power backup options allow us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
