UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data if the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the consistent running of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs constantly, it offers the required 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 hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of 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.

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty that we provide is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide cloud hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it will be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of several clusters handling your content. Each web server within the particular cluster offers its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the entire data center to remain operating for several hours. You won't notice anything even if there is an interruption, as our backup units will power each of the devices and we won't have to reduce the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your sites.
