UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the web servers situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can provide the necessary power to keep the servers operational 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.
