The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server functional in case there are difficulties with the main power source - an interruption or unstable current which cannot keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery that's attached to the server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case there is any disruption, it is already operating, that permits the web server to continue working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS which gives it that time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power problem.

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we provide you with is, to some extent, a result of the power backup setup we have in every of the three data centers in which we provide hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to build or move your sites, it shall be set up on a modern cloud platform that consists of a number of clusters dealing with your content. Every hosting server within the particular cluster features its own effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several electric power generators boot up and supply the necessary power for the whole facility to stay operating for several hours. You won't notice anything even if there's a disruption, because our backup units will power all the devices and we shall not have to limit the total number of working servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your sites.

The latter are able to power the whole facility for a very long time without the need to shut down any devices, so all of the Internet sites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to function at top speed and with no effect on their efficiency. These electric power backup options allow us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
