UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery that is used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of information if the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the uninterrupted operation of all the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs at all times, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is critical for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, because it offers them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

If you order a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an outstanding infrastructure.

The latter can easily power the entire data center for quite a long time without having to shut down any devices, so all the Internet sites hosted on our web servers will continue to work at top speed and with zero effect on their capabilities. These power backup options enable us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
