UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a server to avoid the loss of information in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of all the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works at all times, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is critical for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty which we offer you is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your sites, it will be created on a modern cloud platform that consists of many clusters taking care of your content. Every server within the selected cluster has its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and provide the required power for the whole facility to stay operational for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even in the event there is an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we shall not have to restrict the amount of working web servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your Internet sites.
