UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the proper operation of the machines located within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide you with the required electric power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. If 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 Cloud Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we provide is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we offer cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your websites, it'll be set up on a progressive cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters handling your content. Each server within the selected cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole facility to stay operating for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even when there's a disruption, as our backup units could power all of the devices and we won't have to reduce the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your websites.
