UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power a PC or a web server to avoid the loss of data if the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the constant operation of all the servers located there. As the UPS operates constantly, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it offers them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we provide is, to some extent, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide web hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to build or move your sites, it will be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters taking care of your content. Each machine inside the particular cluster offers its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire data center to stay working for many hours. You'll not notice anything even when there's a disruption, since our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we shall not need to restrict the total number of working servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your sites.
