UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to support the appropriate functioning of the servers based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers consistently, so when 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 definitely an engine that can supply the needed power to keep the machines working 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
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty that we provide is, in part, a result of the power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your sites, it will be set up on a progressive cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters dealing with your content. Each server within the specific cluster features its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire data center to be working for many hours. You'll not notice anything even if there is an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units will power each of the devices and we shall not need to reduce the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your sites.
