All our systems are covered by APC UPS back up systems for instant backup in the event of a power failure. With a diesel backup generator which provides power for prolonged power failures
Our data centre is built to an N+1 standard so this means that if two generators are required to provide non-stop power, then there will be three installed. So rather than guaranteeing 99.99% availability, the guarantee is 100%.
