UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the correct operation of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can give you the needed power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your sites inside a cloud website hosting account with us, you will be able to forget about issues caused by power failures, because, different from all kinds of other providers, we don't keep many hosting servers attached to only one UPS. Alternatively, every hosting server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS unit which will keep it up and running for hours on end. In addition, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and that are able to power all of the web servers for an extensive amount of time. In this way, the functionality of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service all the time.
