UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper operation of the servers situated in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can supply the necessary energy to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. If there is 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.
