UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct operation of the web servers located in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide you with the required electric power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
