UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more info on UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why each hosting data center features them.
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper running of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can deliver the needed electrical power to keep the 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 main power supply is restored.

plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of many clusters controlling your content. Every web server within the particular cluster provides its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole data center to remain operational for many hours. You will not notice anything even in case there is an interruption, since our backup units can power each of the devices and we will not have to reduce the quantity of working servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your websites.

accounts that we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our innovative website hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to each server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to provide electric power for the whole center for several hours with no need to reduce the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even in the event that there is a disruption, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be available without disturbances and will perform at top speed.
