UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they found in every single data center?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery that is used to power a computer or a web server to prevent the loss of information when the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the continuous functioning of all the servers located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it provides the desired power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we provide is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers where we offer shared hosting
plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it will be set up on a progressive cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters taking care of your content. Every single machine within the given cluster offers its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until a number of electric power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire center to be operational for many hours. You will not notice anything even in case there's a disruption, due to the fact that our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we won't have to limit the amount of working web servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your Internet sites.
