UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the correct operation of the servers located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can give you the necessary electrical power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In case 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.
