The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server functioning if there are difficulties with the primary power supply - an interruption or unstable current which cannot keep the machine working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, a powerful battery that's attached to the web server and to the power network all the time, so in case there is any interruption, it is already operating, which allows the web server to continue working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we offer you is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide shared hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to develop or move your sites, it shall be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of several clusters handling your content. Every single hosting server inside the selected cluster has its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire center to remain operational for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's an interruption, because our backup units could power all the devices and we shall not need to reduce the total number of working web servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your sites.
