UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct operation of the servers located inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can deliver the required electric 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 power source is restored.

The semi-dedicated server
accounts that we provide are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our advanced hosting platform and the network that handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to every single server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to deliver electricity for the whole data center for several hours with no need to limit the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even when there is a blackout, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no interruptions and will work at top speed.
