The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server working if there are issues with the primary source - an interruption or unstable current which cannot keep the web server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, a powerful battery that is attached to the machine and to the electricity network all of the time, so in case there is any blackout, it's already functioning, which allows the hosting server to carry on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS which provides this time. Those two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers where we offer shared web hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to create or move your websites, it will be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters dealing with your content. Every single machine in the particular cluster offers its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the entire center to be operational for several hours. You will not notice anything even in the event there's an outage, because our backup units can power each of the devices and we shall not need to limit the number of working servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your sites.
