UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper operation of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS stands 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 at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can provide you with the necessary energy to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
