UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the proper operation of the servers based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can provide the needed power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty that we provide is, in part, a result of the power backup setup that we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we provide website hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to create or move your websites, it shall be created on a modern cloud platform which consists of numerous clusters controlling your content. Every single machine within the selected cluster provides its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until quite a few electrical power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole data center to stay functional for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even when there is an outage, because our backup units can power each of the devices and we shall not need to restrict the amount of working web servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your websites.
