UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the proper operation of the servers located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can supply the needed electric power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

The 99.9% network and web server uptime warranty which we offer you is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide cloud hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to create or move your websites, it will be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters dealing with your content. Each machine within the selected cluster provides its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until several power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the entire data center to stay operating for several hours. You will not notice anything even if there is an interruption, due to the fact that our backup units will be able to power each of the devices and we won't need to limit the total number of working web servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your Internet sites.
