UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a web server to avoid the loss of data if the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the uninterrupted functioning of all the machines located there. Because the UPS runs at all times, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, since it provides them with lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

This setup is amongst the reasons why we can guarantee a 99.9% server and network uptime, so if you host your sites in a shared account with our company, you'll take advantage of a fast and outstanding service without worrying about any disturbances due to electrical power outages.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, it'll be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a different UPS for each server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper operation of any unit will not be disturbed until effective generators start supplying the needed electrical power. The latter can easily power the whole center for quite a long time without the need to shut down any equipment, so all the sites hosted on our web servers will continue to function at optimum speed and with no effect on their capabilities. These power backup options permit us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
