UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why every single hosting data center includes them.
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the correct operation of the web servers situated in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can provide the necessary energy to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary 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 Cloud Web Hosting
If you host your sites inside a cloud web hosting account with our company, you can forget about issues caused by electrical power failures, since, unlike many other providers, we don't keep multiple web servers attached to only one UPS. Alternatively, each and every web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS device which will be able to keep it working for hours on end. In addition, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have numerous generators that boot up for minutes and which are able to power all of the hosting servers for an extensive length of time. That way, the features of your sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service constantly.
