UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper running of the machines based in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can give you the needed electrical power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In case there is 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 sites within a shared hosting account with our company, you'll be able to forget about complications caused by electrical power failures, because, unlike many other providers, we don't keep many different servers attached to just one UPS. Alternatively, each web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit which will be able to keep it operational for a long time. Furthermore, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and that can easily power all of the servers for an extensive length of time. That way, the functionality of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service at all times.
