UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to support the proper operation of the servers situated in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the required electric power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our sophisticated website hosting platform and the network that manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to each machine to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to offer electrical power for the entire center for many hours without the need to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even in the event that there is a disruption, all the sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without any disturbances and will perform at top speed.
