UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? Why are they found in every data center facility?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server working in case there are issues with the main power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery that is attached to the server and to the power network constantly, so in case of any blackout, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to continue doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. Those two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to create or move your websites, it'll be created on a modern cloud platform that consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Each web server within the particular cluster provides its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire facility to stay functional for several hours. You'll not notice anything even in case there's a disruption, as our backup units will be able to power all the devices and we will not need to reduce the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your sites.
