UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power a PC or a server to avoid the loss of information when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. 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 guarantee the constant operation of all the servers located there. Because the UPS works at all times, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain working 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 information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

Furthermore, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have many different generators which boot up for minutes and that will power all the web servers for an extensive stretch of time. That way, the performance of your websites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all the time.
