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 supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the proper functioning of the web servers situated in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can provide you with the needed electrical power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting

If you host your sites within a hosting account with us, you shall be able to forget about troubles caused by electric power blackouts, because, unlike many other providers, we don't keep many different web servers attached to one UPS. Alternatively, each individual web server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit that will keep it operational for hours. Additionally, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and which can power all the servers for an extensive time period. That way, the overall performance of your Internet sites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service at all times.

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

If you order a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an incredible infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses a different UPS for each and every hosting server or network switch located there to make sure that the correct operation of any unit shall not be disturbed until highly effective generators start producing the needed electricity. The latter can power the whole center for quite a long time without having to shut down any devices, so all the sites hosted on our machines shall continue to function at max speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These electrical power backup options allow us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
