UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why each and every hosting data center offers them.
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of info in case the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. 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 ensure the uninterrupted running of all of the servers located there. As the UPS runs at all times, it provides the required power for the servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is crucial for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime guarantee that we offer you is, somewhat, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to develop or move your sites, it'll be created on a progressive cloud platform that consists of several clusters controlling your content. Every web server in the given cluster offers its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a lot of power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire facility to remain working for many hours. You will not notice anything even when there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units could power all the devices and we will not need to restrict the total number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your sites.
