UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of info if the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the consistent functioning of all the servers located there. Because the UPS runs at all times, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we provide you with is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide cloud hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it will be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters handling your content. Each web server in the specific cluster has its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the entire data center to be operating for many hours. You won't notice anything even if there is an interruption, because our backup units could power all of the devices and we shall not have to limit the amount of working servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide you with are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network that deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each machine to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electricity for the whole data center for several hours with no need to minimize the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available without any interruptions and will function at top speed.
