The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server operational if there are difficulties with the main source - an interruption or unreliable current which cannot keep the web server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that's attached to the hosting server and to the electricity network all of the time, so if there is any disturbance, it is already functioning, that permits the server to continue working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty that we provide is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers where we offer cloud website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to create or move your websites, it will be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Every single machine inside the specific cluster has its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the entire data center to stay functional for many hours. You'll not notice anything even in the event there is an interruption, since our backup units will be able to power all of the devices and we shall not have to limit the total number of working web servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your sites.
