UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate operation of the servers located within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, 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 definitely an engine that can deliver the necessary electrical power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.

You'll not notice anything even when there is an interruption, as our backup units can power each of the devices and we shall not need to limit the total number of working servers or the network equipment that handles the traffic to your websites.
