UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to support the proper functioning of the web servers located in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers consistently, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide the needed electric power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we offer you is, somewhat, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we provide hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to build or move your sites, it will be created on a progressive cloud platform that consists of many clusters handling your content. Each and every hosting server within the specific cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole data center to stay working for many hours. You won't notice anything even in the event there is an interruption, because our backup units can power each of the devices and we won't have to limit the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your Internet sites.
