UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of info in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown 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 main power source and to guarantee the continuous running of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is crucial for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, since it gives them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

If you purchase a new account to build or move your Internet sites, it will be set up on a progressive cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters handling your content. Each and every web server within the given cluster offers its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until a lot of electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the entire facility to remain operating for several hours. You won't notice anything even if there's an outage, because our backup units can easily power all the devices and we shall not have to reduce the amount of working web servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your websites.
