The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functional in case there are difficulties with the primary power source - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the machine functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, a powerful battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the electric power network constantly, so in case of any disturbance, it's already functioning, which enables the web server to carry on doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides that time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide is, somewhat, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we provide shared hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your websites, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of many clusters controlling your content. Every single machine within the given cluster has its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole facility to stay operating for many hours. You'll not notice anything even if there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units can easily power all of the devices and we will not need to limit the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your sites.
