UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the correct operation of the machines located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can give you the needed energy to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.

If you host your Internet sites in a hosting
account with our company, you will be able to forget about problems caused by electrical power outages, because, different from various other providers, we don't keep many hosting servers attached to only one UPS. Alternatively, every single hosting server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS unit which can keep it up and running for a long time. In addition, our data centers in the USA, in the UK and in Australia have numerous generators which boot up for minutes and which will power all the web servers for an extensive time period. This way, the features of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all the time.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a different UPS for every single hosting server or network switch located there to make certain that the ideal operation of any unit will not be disturbed until efficient generators start supplying the needed electric power. The latter can easily power the whole facility for a very long time with no need to turn off any machines, so all the websites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to operate at max speed and with zero effect on their functionality. These electrical power backup options enable us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
