UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct functioning of the web servers based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can provide you with the required energy to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

If you get a new account to develop or move your sites, it will be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters dealing with your content. Each and every server inside the specific cluster provides its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and give the required power for the whole center to stay operational for several hours. You will not notice anything even in case there is an outage, since our backup units can easily power each of the devices and we shall not need to reduce the quantity of working servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your websites.
