UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the appropriate operation of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can supply the necessary power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
