UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate running of the servers situated in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the necessary electric power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
