UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the machines based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can deliver the necessary electric power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we offer is, somewhat, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide shared website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to build or move your sites, it'll be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters handling your content. Each machine within the selected cluster has its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole data center to remain operational for many hours. You will not notice anything even when there is an interruption, as our backup units could power all of the devices and we shall not need to restrict the amount of working web servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your websites.
