UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the correct functioning of the web servers located inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful 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 that can supply the necessary power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we provide is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your websites, it'll be created on an innovative cloud platform that consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Each server within the selected cluster offers its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole data center to remain functional for many hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's a disruption, because our backup units will power all the devices and we will not need to limit the amount of working web servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your websites.
