UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a web server to avoid the loss of information when the main power supply fails for whatever reason 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 supply and to guarantee the consistent functioning of all the machines located there. Since the UPS runs constantly, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is crucial for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it provides them with enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we provide you with is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it will be created on a modern cloud platform which consists of several clusters taking care of your content. Every web server within the given cluster provides its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until quite a few power generators boot up and supply the required power for the whole center to stay operational for a lot of hours. You will not notice anything even when there's an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units can power all the devices and we won't need to reduce the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment that addresses the traffic to your Internet sites.

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers that are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network that addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to each server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to deliver electric power for the whole center for several hours without the need to restrict the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even when there is an interruption, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without interruptions and will work at top speed.
