UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the web servers situated inside 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 consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide you with the needed energy to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
