UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a server to prevent the loss of info if the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much 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 operation of all of the web servers located there. As the UPS runs constantly, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, because it gives them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

If you get a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it will be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of several clusters handling your content. Each machine within the specific cluster offers its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole facility to remain operating for many hours. You won't notice anything even when there's an outage, because our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we will not need to restrict the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your sites.
