UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they found in each and every data center?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functioning if there are difficulties with the main power supply - an outage or unstable current that can't keep the hosting server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, an effective battery which is connected to the machine and to the electricity network consistently, so in the case of any interruption, it is already working, that permits the server to carry on operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS which gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee which we offer is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers where we provide shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your websites, it will be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of many clusters taking care of your content. Every single web server in the specific cluster has its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole data center to stay working for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even when there's an outage, as our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we will not have to restrict the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your sites.
