UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the correct running of the machines located within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can give you the necessary power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
