The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functioning if there are issues with the main power supply - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the web server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the electric power network all the time, so in the case of any interruption, it is already operating, which enables the server to continue doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer you are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our innovative website hosting platform and the network which handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to deliver electrical power for the whole center for several hours without the need to limit the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without any disturbances and will operate at top speed.
