UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery used to power a computer or a server to avoid the loss of info if the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less 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 functioning of all of the servers located there. Because the UPS runs at all times, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is vital for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the 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 main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we offer is, somewhat, a result of the power backup setup we have in each of the three data centers where we provide website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it will be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters controlling your content. Every single server within the particular cluster provides its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole facility to be working for many hours. You'll not notice anything even when there is an interruption, as our backup units could power all of the devices and we will not need to reduce the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your sites.
