The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server working if there are difficulties with the main power source - a disruption or unstable current that can't keep the web server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, an effective battery that's connected to the web server and to the power network at all times, so in case of any disturbance, it's already functioning, which enables the hosting server to keep on doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer you are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network that addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is connected to each and every server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to provide electricity for the whole facility for many hours without the need to limit the power consumption or the productivity of any web server or network device, so even when there is a disruption, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disruptions and will function at top speed.
