UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power a personal computer or a web server to prevent the loss of information in case the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the constant operation of all the servers located there. As the UPS works constantly, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is vital for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it offers them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

If you host your Internet sites within a cloud web hosting account with us, you can forget about troubles caused by electrical power outages, because, unlike all kinds of other providers, we do not keep many different hosting servers attached to just one UPS. Rather, every single hosting server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS device that can keep it operational for hours on end. Additionally, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators which boot up for minutes and which will be able to power all of the web servers for an extensive stretch of time. That way, the performance of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service constantly.
