The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server functional if there are difficulties with the primary source - a disruption or unreliable current that can't keep the server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, a powerful battery that's attached to the web server and to the electric power network all the time, so if there is any interruption, it's already operating, that permits the web server to keep on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power issue.

In addition, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators that boot up for minutes and that are able to power each of the hosting servers for an extensive time period. That way, the performance of your websites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service at all times.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Chicago-based center uses a separate UPS for each server or network switch located there to make sure that the correct operation of any piece of equipment will not be disrupted until effective generators start providing the required electric power. The latter can power the whole data center for quite a while with no need to shut down any equipment, so all the sites hosted on our machines will continue to function at maximum speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These power backup options permit us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
