UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper running of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the necessary power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network that handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to every machine to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to provide electric power for the whole center for many hours without the need to minimize the power consumption or the productivity of any web server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without disturbances and will work at top speed.
