UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper operation of the servers located inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can supply the necessary power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
