UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What precisely a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they found in every single data center?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the proper functioning of the servers based within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can provide you with the needed electrical power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the case of 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.

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee that we offer you is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your websites, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters dealing with your content. Every web server inside the given cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until quite a few electrical power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole data center to be operating for several hours. You'll not notice anything even if there is an outage, due to the fact that our backup units could power each of the devices and we shall not have to reduce the total number of working web servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your Internet sites.
