UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the appropriate running of the servers based within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the needed electric power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee which we offer you is, partly, a result of the power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide shared hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of many clusters controlling your content. Each and every hosting server inside the specific cluster offers its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole facility to remain operational for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even in the event there is a disruption, because our backup units will be able to power all of the devices and we shall not need to reduce the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your sites.
