The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server working if there are issues with the main power source - an interruption or unreliable current that can't keep the hosting server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, an efficient battery that's connected to the web server and to the power network all the time, so in the event of any blackout, it's already operating, which enables the server to carry on working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites within a shared hosting account with our company, you can forget about issues caused by electric power blackouts, due to the fact that, different from many other providers, we don't keep multiple web servers attached to just one UPS. Alternatively, each and every hosting server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit that can keep it up and running for a long time. Moreover, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and that can easily power all the hosting servers for an extensive amount of time. That way, the performance of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service constantly.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses a separate UPS for every single server or network switch located there to make certain that the proper operation of any piece of equipment shall not be interrupted until highly effective generators start providing the needed electrical power. The latter will power the entire center for a very long time with no need to turn off any machines, so all of the websites hosted on our servers shall continue to operate at top speed and with zero effect on their capabilities. These electrical power backup options permit us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
