UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct functioning of the servers located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide you with the needed electrical power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
