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