UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their role and why are they available in data centers anywhere in the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functional in case there are problems with the primary source - an interruption or shaky current which cannot keep the server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the power network all the time, so in the event of any disturbance, it's already operating, which allows the hosting server to keep on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. Those two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide shared website hosting
packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your sites, it will be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters dealing with your content. Every machine within the given cluster provides its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire facility to stay functional for many hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's an outage, due to the fact that our backup units could power all the devices and we shall not need to restrict the number of working web servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your sites.
