UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the proper running of the web servers located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the necessary electric power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

You'll not notice anything even in case there is a disruption, because our backup units can easily power all the devices and we shall not have to reduce the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your Internet sites.

An individual UPS system is connected to every single web server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to supply electricity for the whole facility for several hours with no need to reduce the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even in the event that there is a disruption, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available without any disruptions and will operate at top speed.
