UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper running of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can deliver the necessary power to keep the web servers functioning 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 source is restored.
