UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power a PC or a web server in order to avoid the loss of data when 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 widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the continuous operation of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works at all times, it provides the required power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, since it offers them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting
If you host your websites within a website hosting account with our company, you can forget about problems caused by power failures, due to the fact that, in contrast to various other providers, we don't keep multiple web servers attached to a single UPS. Rather, each and every machine that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS unit that can easily keep it functioning for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the USA, in the UK and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and that can power each of the hosting servers for an extensive stretch of time. This way, the performance of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service at all times.
