UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper operation of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, so anytime 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 provide you with the required power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
