UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the proper functioning of the servers based within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can give you the necessary energy to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
