The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server working if there are difficulties with the main power source - an outage or unstable current which cannot keep the web server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery which is attached to the hosting server and to the power network all of the time, so in the case of any disturbance, it's already operating, which allows the web server to keep on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides that time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power problem.

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty that we offer is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup that we have in every of the 3 data centers where we offer cloud web hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your Internet sites, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters handling your content. Each hosting server in the specific cluster provides its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole facility to be functional for many hours. You won't notice anything even when there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units will power all of the devices and we shall not have to reduce the quantity of working servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your websites.

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our advanced web hosting platform and the network that addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to every server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to offer electric power for the whole facility for many hours without having to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even in case there is a blackout, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without any disturbances and will operate at top speed.
