UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they found in every single data center facility?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the correct operation of the machines located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective 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 working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can give you the necessary power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee which we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we provide web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your sites, it will be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters controlling your content. Each hosting server in the particular cluster provides its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the entire facility to remain operational for many hours. You will not notice anything even if there's an interruption, as our backup units could power all the devices and we won't have to limit the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your websites.
