UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the correct running of the web servers located in the facility. UPS stands 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 web servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can provide you with the necessary electrical power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In the event 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.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer you are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our advanced website hosting platform and the network which deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to each server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to deliver electric power for the whole center for several hours without having to limit the power consumption or the efficiency of any web server or network device, so even when there is a disruption, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no interruptions and will function at top speed.
