UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct operation of the machines located in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, 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 electrical power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
