UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a PC or a web server to avoid the loss of information if the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the consistent operation of all the machines located there. As the UPS runs all the time, it provides the desired power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is a must for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it gives them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

In addition, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and that can easily power all of the hosting servers for an extensive period of time. In this way, the features of your sites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service all the time.
