The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are troubles with the main power source - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the electric power network all of the time, so if there is any disruption, it is already functioning, which allows the server to keep on operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

We offer you Linux shared hosting packages in 3 of the largest sized data centers around the world. They are located in the United States, in the UK and in Australia. Considering that data integrity and server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have several backup systems against power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the servers up and running for hours or even for several days and each machine which is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform includes its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it working until the generators begin working. This setup is one of the reasons why we're able to ensure a 99.9% hosting server and network uptime, so if you host your websites in a shared account with us, you will take full advantage of a fast and remarkable service without having to worry about any disruptions due to electric power outages.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our advanced web hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each and every server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to provide electrical power for the whole facility for several hours without having to minimize the power consumption or the productivity of any web server or network device, so even in case there is an interruption, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available without any disturbances and will function at top speed.
