UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in every data center?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate running of the servers based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, 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 definitely an engine which can deliver the necessary power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the required 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 Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting account with our company, you can forget about problems caused by electric power failures, since, unlike all kinds of other providers, we do not keep many servers attached to one UPS. Rather, every single hosting server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit that will keep it working for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have numerous generators which boot up for minutes and which will be able to power each of the hosting servers for an extensive period of time. That way, the features of your sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service constantly.
