UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate functioning of the machines located in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so when 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 energy to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
