UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the correct functioning of the machines based in 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 is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can give you the needed power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. If there is 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.
