UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the correct running of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide you with the needed electrical power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
