UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the proper running of the servers situated in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can give you the required electric power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we offer is, in part, a result of the power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it shall be set up on a progressive cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters controlling your content. Each web server in the specific cluster has its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole center to stay operational for several hours. You won't notice anything even when there is an outage, due to the fact that our backup units could power each of the devices and we won't have to restrict the total number of working servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your websites.
