UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power a computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of data in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the continuous operation of all the machines located there. Because the UPS works constantly, it provides the required power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it provides them with ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared hosting account with us, you can forget about troubles caused by electrical power outages, since, different from all kinds of other providers, we don't keep several hosting servers attached to a single UPS. Instead, every single web server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS unit that can easily keep it up and running for many hours. Additionally, our data centers in the USA, in the UK and in Australia have multiple generators that boot up for minutes and that will power all the servers for an extensive time period. That way, the performance of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all the time.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer you are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our advanced website hosting platform and the network which deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to every single machine to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to deliver electric power for the entire facility for many hours with no need to restrict the power consumption or the functionality of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disturbances and will perform at top speed.
