UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the appropriate operation of the servers based in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can provide you with the required power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer you are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is among the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network which deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to every single web server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to deliver electricity for the entire facility for a long time with no need to limit the power consumption or the overall performance of any web server or network device, so even when there is an outage, all the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without disturbances and will work at top speed.
