UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their function and why are they available in data centers all over the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to support the proper functioning of the machines based in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can deliver the necessary electrical power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary 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 Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we provide you with is, partly, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide shared website hosting
plans - 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 set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Each and every server in the given cluster offers its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until quite a few electrical power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire center to be functional for several hours. You'll not notice anything even in case there is an outage, due to the fact that our backup units could power each of the devices and we won't need to limit the amount of working servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your Internet sites.
