UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to support the appropriate running of the web servers based within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide you with the required electrical power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
