The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are problems with the primary power supply - an interruption or shaky current that can't keep the server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, an efficient battery that's connected to the server and to the power network constantly, so in case there is any blackout, it's already working, which allows the server to keep on running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power problem.

In addition, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have many different generators that boot up for minutes and which are able to power all of the hosting servers for an extensive stretch of time. That way, the features of your websites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service constantly.
