The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server functioning if there are difficulties with the main power source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the web server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery which is connected to the server and to the power network all of the time, so in case of any disturbance, it is already operating, which allows the server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it this time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it will be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an individual UPS for each and every hosting server or network switch located there to make certain that the correct operation of any piece of equipment shall not be disrupted until powerful generators start producing the necessary electricity. The latter can easily power the entire facility for quite a while without the need to shut down any equipment, so all of the sites hosted on our web servers shall continue to work at top speed and with zero effect on their capabilities. These power backup options allow us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
