UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting companies in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the proper operation of the machines based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can deliver the needed electrical power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we offer you is, in part, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your websites, it'll be set up on a progressive cloud platform which consists of many clusters controlling your content. Each hosting server in the specific cluster has its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole data center to be working for several hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's an outage, due to the fact that our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we shall not need to reduce the quantity of working servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your Internet sites.
