UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate running of the servers located inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the needed electric power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
