UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the correct operation of the machines situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can give you the needed electrical power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
