The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server working in case there are difficulties with the primary power supply - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the machine working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that is attached to the server and to the electricity network all the time, so in case there is any disturbance, it's already working, which allows the web server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up an entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.

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

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it'll be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with a fantastic infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an independent UPS for every web server or network switch located there to ensure that the ideal operation of any device will not be disturbed until powerful generators start supplying the needed electric power. The latter can power the entire data center for quite a long time without the need to turn off any equipment, so all the sites hosted on our machines will continue to operate at top speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These electrical power backup options enable us to ensure that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
