UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper functioning of the machines located in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can supply the necessary energy to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
