The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server functioning in case there are troubles with the primary power supply - an interruption or unstable current that cannot keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, an effective battery which is connected to the machine and to the electricity network consistently, so if there is any blackout, it is already operating, that permits the hosting server to carry on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power issue.

If you host your websites within a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to forget about issues caused by power outages, due to the fact that, unlike all kinds of other providers, we do not keep numerous web servers attached to just one UPS. Alternatively, each hosting server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS unit that will be able to keep it operational for a long time. In addition, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and that can power each of the hosting servers for an extensive length of time. In this way, the features of your sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all the time.

An individual UPS unit is connected to each and every hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to supply electric power for the whole data center for several hours without having to limit the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even in case there is an outage, all the sites hosted on our platform shall still be available without disruptions and will function at top speed.
