The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functional if there are issues with the main power source - a disruption or shaky current which cannot keep the machine working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery that is attached to the web server and to the power network all of the time, so in the case of any interruption, it's already working, which allows the hosting server to keep on doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. Those two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power problem.

In addition, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have many different generators that boot up for minutes and that can power each of the servers for an extensive amount of time. This way, the features of your Internet sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all the time.
