UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their job and why are they available in data centers all over the world?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of information in case the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. 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 ensure the uninterrupted functioning of all the machines located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical 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, due to the fact that it gives them enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting
The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we provide you with is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in every of the three data centers in which we offer shared web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to build or move your websites, it shall be set up on a modern cloud platform that consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Every machine in the specific cluster provides its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole facility to stay operational for several hours. You will not notice anything even when there's an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units will power each of the devices and we won't have to restrict the number of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your sites.
