UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to support the proper operation of the servers based inside 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 web servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can provide you with the necessary electrical power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In the 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.
