UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their job and why are they available in data centers all around the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate running of the web servers based within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can give you the required electric power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary 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 Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee which we offer is, somewhat, a result of the power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we offer hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to build or move your sites, it shall be set up on an innovative cloud platform that consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Every machine inside the given cluster features its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the whole center to be operational for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even when there is a disruption, since our backup units will be able to power all of the devices and we won't need to reduce the amount of working web servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your sites.
