UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct running of the web servers situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can deliver the required electric power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
