The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functioning in case there are issues with the main source - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery that's attached to the server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case of any disruption, it is already working, which allows the web server to keep on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it this time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power issue.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites within a shared hosting account with our company, you'll be able to forget about issues caused by power failures, simply because, different from all kinds of other providers, we do not keep numerous web servers attached to one UPS. Rather, each machine which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device which will be able to keep it operational for many hours. Also, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and that will be able to power all of the web servers for an extensive time period. In this way, the features of your websites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all the time.

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it'll be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses a separate UPS for every web server or network switch located there to make sure that the ideal operation of any unit shall not be disrupted until efficient generators start providing the required electric power. The latter will power the whole data center for quite a while with no need to shut down any devices, so each of the sites hosted on our servers will continue to function at maximum speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These electric power backup options allow us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
