UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the appropriate running of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers consistently, so in case 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 certainly an engine which can give you the required electrical power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
