UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power a personal computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of info in case the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the uninterrupted running of all the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates constantly, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is vital for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, because it offers them enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites inside a cloud hosting account with us, you can forget about problems caused by power blackouts, since, unlike many other providers, we do not keep multiple hosting servers attached to just one UPS. Rather, every single web server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS unit which can keep it operational for many hours. Also, our data centers in the USA, in the UK and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and which will be able to power all of the web servers for an extensive amount of time. In this way, the overall performance of your sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service constantly.

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an incredible infrastructure.

The latter can power the entire center for quite a while with no need to turn off any equipment, so all of the Internet sites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to function at top speed and with zero effect on their efficiency. These power backup options allow us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
