UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What precisely a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they found in each and every data center facility?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the correct running of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide you with the necessary electrical power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee which we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers where we provide cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your sites, it will be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters dealing with your content. Every hosting server in the given cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire data center to stay operating for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's a disruption, since our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we shall not need to reduce the number of working web servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your websites.
