The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server operational in case there are problems with the primary power supply - an interruption or shaky current that can't keep the web server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case of any interruption, it is already operating, which enables the hosting server to keep on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power problem.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host your websites within a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to forget about troubles caused by electric power failures, because, different from various other providers, we don't keep many hosting servers attached to only one UPS. Instead, every single server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS device which can easily keep it functioning for many hours. Additionally, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators that boot up for minutes and which will be able to power each of the web servers for an extensive period of time. That way, the functionality of your sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service all the time.

The Chicago-based data center uses an individual UPS for each hosting server or network switch located there to make certain that the proper functioning of any piece of equipment shall not be interrupted until powerful generators start producing the needed electrical power. The latter can easily power the whole data center for quite a long time without having to shut down any devices, so all of the websites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to operate at max speed and with no effect on their efficiency. These electrical power backup options allow us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
