UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power a computer or a web server to prevent the loss of data in case the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the continuous operation of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works at all times, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host your websites inside a cloud web hosting account with our company, you'll be able to forget about problems caused by power outages, because, unlike many other providers, we don't keep many web servers attached to only one UPS. Rather, each and every hosting server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which can easily keep it operational for many hours. Furthermore, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have a number of generators which boot up for minutes and that can power all the servers for an extensive time period. This way, the features of your sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all the time.
