The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a server functional in case there are troubles with the main power supply - a disruption or shaky current which cannot keep the web server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the power network all of the time, so in case there is any disturbance, it's already working, which enables the hosting server to carry on doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS which provides this time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power problem.

The latter will power the whole data center for quite a long time without having to turn off any devices, so all of the sites hosted on our servers shall continue to work at max speed and with no effect on their overall performance. These electrical power backup options permit us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
