UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their function and why are they available in data center facilities all around the globe?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a server to avoid the loss of information in case the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the consistent functioning of all the machines located there. As the UPS works constantly, it provides the desired power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it provides them with enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

If you purchase a new account to create or move your websites, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of several clusters controlling your content. Every single server inside the particular cluster provides its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a lot of electrical power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole data center to remain operating for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even when there's an outage, due to the fact that our backup units can power all the devices and we won't have to restrict the number of working servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your Internet sites.
