The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a server operational if there are troubles with the main power source - a disruption or unstable current that can't keep the hosting server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, a powerful battery that's connected to the web server and to the power network at all times, so in case there is any disturbance, it is already functioning, that permits the web server to keep on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it will be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an individual UPS for every single web server or network switch located there to ensure that the proper operation of any unit shall not be disrupted until powerful generators start providing the necessary electrical power. The latter are able to power the entire facility for quite a while without having to turn off any devices, so all of the Internet sites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to function at maximum speed and with zero effect on their capabilities. These electric power backup options permit us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
