UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of information when the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant operation of all of the servers located there. Since the UPS operates at all times, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is vital for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

We offer cloud services in three of the largest data centers throughout the world. They are located in the U.S., in the United kingdom and in Australia. Due to the fact that data protection and web server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have a few backup systems against electrical power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the web servers working for hours or even for a few days and every machine that is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform provides its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it working until the generators start working. This setup is one of the reasons why we can guarantee a 99.9% server and network uptime, so if you host your Internet sites within a shared account with our company, you'll take advantage of a fast and outstanding service and never having to worry about any disturbances due to electrical power outages.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network that manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every web server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electricity for the entire facility for several hours with no need to reduce the power consumption or the productivity of any web server or network device, so even when there is a blackout, all the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without any disturbances and will work at top speed.
