The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functioning in case there are issues with the main power source - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is connected to the machine and to the electricity network constantly, so in the event of any blackout, it is already working, which enables the hosting server to keep on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up an entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared hosting account with us, you can forget about issues caused by electric power outages, since, different from many other providers, we do not keep several hosting servers attached to one UPS. Instead, each machine that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit which will keep it up and running for many hours. Additionally, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have many different generators which boot up for minutes and that can power all the servers for an extensive stretch of time. This way, the performance of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service constantly.

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

We've taken all measures to avoid any service disruptions caused by a electric power outage, so if you use a semi-dedicated server account for your Internet sites, you'll enjoy a fast and secure hosting service consistently. Every single hosting server that's part of our custom platform has a separate UPS to keep it operating until a few effective enterprise-class diesel generators take over to produce the necessary electricity for all the units for so long as required. The latter are powerful enough to have everything working at top capacity, so we'll not need to shut down any hosting servers or to use fewer network devices, which could reduce the loading speed of your Internet sites or affect their overall performance. This top-notch electrical power setup is one of the reasons for our 99.9% web server and network uptime guarantee, that is valid for all semi-dedicated plans that we're providing.
