UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of info when the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the consistent running of all of the servers located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain working 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 info intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we offer is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer shared hosting
packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to build or move your sites, it will be set up on a modern cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters taking care of your content. Each machine within the given cluster provides its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until a number of electrical power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole center to remain working for many hours. You'll not notice anything even if there's an outage, since our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we will not need to reduce the number of working web servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your Internet sites.
