UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Know more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why every hosting data center includes them.
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the web servers based within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the required electrical power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary 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 Cloud Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty which we offer you is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide cloud website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it will be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of several clusters handling your content. Each and every machine in the given cluster provides its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the entire facility to remain working for several hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there is an interruption, because our backup units can easily power all of the devices and we shall not need to reduce the amount of working web servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your websites.
