UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power a PC or a server to prevent the loss of info if the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the continuous functioning of all of the machines located there. Because the UPS works constantly, it provides the necessary power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is vital for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it offers them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites inside a shared hosting account with us, you can forget about complications caused by electrical power failures, because, different from many other providers, we don't keep many different web servers attached to only one UPS. Rather, every single web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS device which can easily keep it functioning for hours. Furthermore, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have numerous generators that boot up for minutes and that will power each of the hosting servers for an extensive time period. That way, the performance of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service constantly.
