UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct running of the servers based within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which 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 helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can deliver the needed electrical power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.

We offer you Linux cloud website hosting packages in 3 of the biggest data centers globally. They are located in the USA, in the United kingdom and in Australia. Since data security and server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have a few backup systems against power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the servers operational for hours or even for a couple of days and every machine that's part of our cutting-edge cloud platform includes its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational until the generators start working. This setup is among the reasons why we are able to ensure a 99.9% server and network uptime, so if you host your web sites within a shared account with us, you will take full advantage of a fast and outstanding service and never having to worry about any interruptions due to electrical power outages.
