UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the correct functioning of the servers located within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the needed energy to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

You will not notice anything even when there's an interruption, because our backup units can power all of the devices and we shall not have to limit the amount of working hosting servers or the network equipment which handles the traffic to your Internet sites.
