UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by 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 sustain the appropriate operation of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide you with the necessary energy to keep the web servers up and running 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 main source is restored.
