UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power your personal computer or a server to avoid the loss of information if the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the uninterrupted running of all the machines located there. As the UPS runs at all times, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is a must for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because 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 Shared Hosting

If you host your sites inside a shared hosting account with us, you'll be able to forget about complications caused by electrical power blackouts, because, unlike all kinds of other providers, we do not keep many different web servers attached to a single UPS. Alternatively, every single hosting server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which will keep it functioning for hours. Furthermore, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and that will power each of the web servers for an extensive amount of time. This way, the functionality of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all the time.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide you with are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our sophisticated hosting platform and the network which addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to each hosting server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to provide electricity for the whole data center for several hours without the need to restrict the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even when there is a disruption, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without any interruptions and will perform at top speed.
