UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper running of the machines situated in the facility. UPS refers to 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 servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can provide the needed electrical power to keep the web servers operational 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 primary power source is restored.
