UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their function and why are they available in data center facilities all over the world?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power a PC or a server in order to avoid the loss of information when the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the constant operation of all of the machines located there. As the UPS works constantly, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in every of the 3 data centers where we provide cloud web hosting
packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it will be created on an innovative cloud platform that consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Each hosting server in the given cluster offers its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire data center to stay operating for several hours. You will not notice anything even if there is an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units can power each of the devices and we won't have to limit the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your websites.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server
account from us, it'll be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an independent UPS for each hosting server or network switch located there to make sure that the ideal functioning of any device will not be interrupted until highly effective generators start supplying the needed electrical power. The latter can easily power the whole center for quite a long time with no need to turn off any devices, so all of the websites hosted on our machines will continue to operate at max speed and with zero effect on their functionality. These electrical power backup options permit us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
