UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery that is used to power a PC or a hosting server to prevent the loss of information if the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant operation of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is a must for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, as it offers them ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers where we provide cloud web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your sites, it shall be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters taking care of your content. Every hosting server within the given cluster has its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole facility to be functional for many hours. You won't notice anything even if there is an interruption, as our backup units can power all of the devices and we won't need to reduce the number of working web servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your Internet sites.
