UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their function and why are they available in data centers anywhere in the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky 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's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can deliver the needed power to keep the servers working 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 source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty which we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide cloud hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your websites, it'll be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of many clusters controlling your content. Each and every machine inside the particular cluster features its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole facility to be operational for many hours. You will not notice anything even if there is an outage, since our backup units will power all the devices and we won't need to restrict the amount of working web servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your Internet sites.
