UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in the event 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 is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the needed energy to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
