The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server functioning in case there are problems with the main power supply - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the hosting server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is connected to the web server and to the electricity network all of the time, so if there is any disturbance, it is already working, which allows the hosting server to carry on running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we offer is, in part, a result of the power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it shall be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of many clusters controlling your content. Every single hosting server within the particular cluster has its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole data center to be functional for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in the event there is a disruption, since our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we will not have to limit the amount of working servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your websites.
