UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the proper operation of the machines located within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide you with the necessary electrical power to keep the web servers operational 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 power supply is restored.
