UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their job and why are they available in data centers everywhere around the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are difficulties with the primary power source - a disruption or unstable current which cannot keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery that's attached to the server and to the power network consistently, so if there is any blackout, it's already operating, that permits the hosting server to carry on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that provides this time. These 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power problem.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server
accounts that we offer you are created within a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network that handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to every web server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to offer electricity for the whole center for many hours without having to limit the power consumption or the functionality of any hosting server or network device, so even in case there is a blackout, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disturbances and will perform at top speed.
