The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functioning if there are difficulties with the main power source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery which is connected to the server and to the power network consistently, so in case there is any disturbance, it is already functioning, which allows the server to keep on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we offer you is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your websites, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters handling your content. Every machine inside the particular cluster offers its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electrical power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole data center to remain operational for several hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there is a disruption, as our backup units can power all of the devices and we won't need to reduce the number of working web servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your websites.
