UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate operation of the servers situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers at all times, 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 literally an engine which can give you the needed electric power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
