UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting companies inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate operation of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can give you the needed electric power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.

If you host your Internet sites within a hosting account with us, you shall be able to forget about problems caused by power outages, due to the fact that, unlike various other providers, we don't keep several servers attached to just one UPS. Instead, every hosting server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device that can easily keep it up and running for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and which can easily power all of the servers for an extensive length of time. That way, the performance of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service all of the time.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers that are part of our sophisticated hosting platform and the network which handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to each and every hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to offer electrical power for the whole facility for several hours without the need to minimize the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even in the event that there is an interruption, all the sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible with no interruptions and will function at top speed.
