UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the correct running of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers consistently, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the needed energy to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.

The latter can power the entire data center for quite a long time without the need to shut down any devices, so each of the websites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to operate at top speed and without any effect on their efficiency. These electric power backup options enable us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
