UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their role and why are they available in data centers everywhere around the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functioning if there are difficulties with the primary source - an outage or unstable current that can't keep the server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, a powerful battery that's attached to the web server and to the power network all the time, so in case of any disturbance, it is already operating, which allows the server to keep on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up an entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we provide you with is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup 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 acquire a new account to create or move your sites, it shall be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Each and every hosting server within the specific cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole center to be functional for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even when there is an outage, since our backup units can power each of the devices and we will not need to reduce the total number of working web servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your Internet sites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server
account from us, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses an independent UPS for every hosting server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper operation of any device won't be disturbed until efficient generators start providing the necessary electrical power. The latter can power the whole center for a very long time without having to shut down any machines, so all the sites hosted on our servers shall continue to work at top speed and with no effect on their efficiency. These power backup options allow us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
