UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a web server to prevent the loss of info if the main power source fails for reasons unknown 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 guarantee the consistent operation of all the machines located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty that we offer is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers where we offer shared hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to develop or move your websites, it shall be created on a progressive cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters handling your content. Each hosting server within the selected cluster offers its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire data center to stay working for many hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units can power all the devices and we shall not need to restrict the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your websites.

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide are created in 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 afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our advanced website hosting platform and the network that manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each and every hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to supply electric power for the entire data center for several hours without having to reduce the power consumption or the efficiency of any hosting server or network device, so even when there is an outage, all the websites hosted on our platform shall still be available without any interruptions and will operate at top speed.
