UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the machines based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can supply the required energy to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
