ProgressiveHost.com's server power is backed by two parallel-redundant
300KVA Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS system) and a 1.5 Megawatt
turbocharged diesel generator with 12 hours of diesel fuel on-site.
All of the racks and cages are serviced by one or more 20 amp, 120
volt AC circuits. This UPS has been installed to constantly monitor
and regulate the quality of power from the wall so it constantly
receives the clean power it was designed for. The UPS system provides
immunity to energy spikes and surges experienced by the public sector.
This ensures that there will be no interruptions in mission critical
services. It has redundant capacity and allows maintenance to be
performed on the system with no risk of power outage. Backup and
redundant generators guarantee an alternate power source, providing
indefinite hours of additional uptime in the event of a utility
or system failure. The generator is tested on a weekly basis. In
an event of a power outage, the power generator will start within
45 seconds at full operating capacity. Fuel can be added to the
generator to keep the network up and running indefinitely. All in
all, the powerful diesel generator has enough power to supply an
entire building electricity at full capacity.

at 45% WE constantly monitor locally and remotely our electrical,
mechanical, security and automation system to ensure that potential
problems will be discovered quickly and addressed before there is
