The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server functional in case there are issues with the main power source - an interruption or unstable current which cannot keep the server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery that is attached to the machine and to the electricity network all of the time, so if there is any blackout, it is already working, which enables the server to continue operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that provides that time. Those two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power problem.

If you host your websites within a website hosting account with us, you can forget about issues caused by power outages, since, in contrast to various other providers, we do not keep many servers attached to only one UPS. Rather, each machine that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit that will keep it working for hours. Moreover, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have numerous generators that boot up for minutes and that will power all of the hosting servers for an extensive time period. This way, the overall performance of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service at all times.
