UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of data when the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the continuous functioning of all the web servers located there. As the UPS operates constantly, it offers the necessary power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The semi-dedicated server accounts which we offer are created inside 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 can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our innovative web hosting platform and the network that deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to each and every server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electric power for the entire facility for a long time without the need to limit the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even in case there is a blackout, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no interruptions and will operate at top speed.
