The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server functional in case there are problems with the primary power source - a disruption or shaky current which cannot keep the server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the electricity network constantly, so in the event of any interruption, it is already functioning, which enables the hosting server to keep on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.

Instead, every single web server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device that can easily keep it up and running for hours. Also, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have many different generators which boot up for minutes and which will power all of the servers for an extensive period of time. That way, the functionality of your websites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all of the time.
