UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the machines based within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric 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 that can supply the needed electrical power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
