UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to support the correct functioning of the machines located in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide you with the required energy to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
