UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a computer or a server to avoid the loss of data when the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the constant functioning of all of the servers located there. As the UPS runs all the time, it provides the required power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is a must for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it offers them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we offer is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer cloud website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your websites, it'll be created on a progressive cloud platform which consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Every single server within the specific cluster offers its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire center to remain operating for several hours. You'll not notice anything even when there's an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units could power each of the devices and we won't have to restrict the number of working servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your Internet sites.
