UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which 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 sustain the proper running of the servers situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the needed energy to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
If you host your websites within a cloud hosting account with us, you'll be able to forget about problems caused by electric power blackouts, because, different from many other providers, we do not keep numerous web servers attached to just one UPS. Instead, every web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit that will keep it working for hours. Moreover, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators which boot up for minutes and which are able to power all of the hosting servers for an extensive time period. This way, the features of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service at all times.
