UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a server to prevent the loss of information if the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant functioning of all the servers located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting
If you host your websites in a website hosting account with us, you will be able to forget about problems caused by electric power blackouts, simply because, unlike many other providers, we do not keep several web servers attached to a single UPS. Instead, each and every server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which can keep it functioning for hours on end. Moreover, our data centers in the United States, in the UK and in Australia have many different generators that boot up for minutes and that will power each of the web servers for an extensive period of time. In this way, the performance of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service constantly.
