UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the servers located in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide you with the needed energy to keep the servers up and running 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 power supply is restored.

This setup is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% web server and network uptime, so if you host your sites within a shared account with our company, you'll enjoy a fast and outstanding service without worrying about any interruptions due to electric power outages.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it'll be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a separate UPS for each and every server or network switch located there to make sure that the ideal functioning of any piece of equipment shall not be disrupted until highly effective generators start producing the needed electric power. The latter can power the whole center for a very long time without the need to shut down any devices, so all the Internet sites hosted on our web servers will continue to work at maximum speed and with no effect on their functionality. These electrical power backup options permit us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
