The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a server functional in case there are troubles with the main power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that can't keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery that's attached to the machine and to the power network consistently, so in the case of any disruption, it's already working, which allows the web server to continue doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we offer you is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers where we offer shared web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your websites, it shall be set up on a progressive cloud platform that consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Every server in the particular cluster features its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire data center to be functional for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even when there is an outage, because our backup units will be able to power all of the devices and we won't need to reduce the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your sites.
