UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can give you the necessary energy to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
