The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functional if there are troubles with the main source - an outage or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery that is connected to the machine and to the electric power network all of the time, so in the event of any blackout, it's already functioning, that permits the server to continue working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides that time. Those two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with a superb infrastructure. The Chicago-based center uses an individual UPS for every single server or network switch located there to ensure that the ideal functioning of any piece of equipment won't be disturbed until powerful generators start supplying the required electrical power. The latter can easily power the entire center for quite a while without having to turn off any machines, so all of the websites hosted on our machines will continue to function at max speed and without any effect on their functionality. These electric power backup options enable us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
