UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a server to prevent the loss of information in case the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the uninterrupted functioning of all the machines located there. As the UPS works constantly, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, as it gives them ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty that we offer is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we offer hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to develop or move your websites, it'll be created on a modern cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters controlling your content. Each and every hosting server in the selected cluster offers its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the entire data center to be working for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even when there's an outage, because our backup units could power all of the devices and we won't need to restrict the amount of working servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your sites.
