UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power some type of computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of data in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the consistent operation of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works all the time, it offers the required power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it gives them ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we offer is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your websites, it'll be created on a modern cloud platform which consists of many clusters handling your content. Each web server inside the given cluster provides its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the entire facility to be working for several hours. You will not notice anything even if there is a disruption, since our backup units will power each of the devices and we won't need to limit the amount of working web servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our sophisticated website hosting platform and the network which addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to every single web server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to offer electrical power for the whole data center for many hours without having to reduce the power consumption or the functionality of any web server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible with no disturbances and will perform at top speed.
