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 globe?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server working if there are troubles with the primary power source - a disruption or unreliable current which cannot keep the machine working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery that is connected to the server and to the electric power network consistently, so in case of any interruption, it's already operating, which allows the hosting server to carry on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power issue.

account with our company, you will be able to forget about troubles caused by electric power blackouts, because, unlike various other providers, we don't keep numerous web servers attached to a single UPS. Rather, each web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which will be able to keep it functioning for hours on end. In addition, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have numerous generators which boot up for minutes and which can easily power all the servers for an extensive amount of time. In this way, the functionality of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all the time.

account from us, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a different UPS for each and every hosting server or network switch located there to ensure that the correct functioning of any piece of equipment will not be disturbed until effective generators start producing the needed electric power. The latter will power the entire facility for quite a long time without having to turn off any equipment, so each of the Internet sites hosted on our servers shall continue to function at top speed and without any effect on their functionality. These electrical power backup options allow us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
