UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the correct functioning of the servers located inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can provide the necessary electric power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we offer is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide cloud hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to build or move your sites, it'll be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Each and every web server in the particular cluster features its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a lot of power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the entire data center to be operating for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even if there's a disruption, as our backup units will be able to power all the devices and we shall not need to reduce the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your Internet sites.
