UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct operation of the web servers located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide the needed power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
