UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the appropriate running of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can supply the required electrical power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
