UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they found in every single data center?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a PC or a web server to prevent the loss of data if the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically 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 continuous running of all the web servers located there. As the UPS runs constantly, 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 provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Hosting
The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty that we provide you with is, in part, a result of the power backup setup that we have in each of the three data centers in which we provide hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your websites, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Every single web server in the given cluster provides its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole data center to stay functional for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even if there is a disruption, as our backup units could power each of the devices and we won't have to limit the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your sites.
