UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the proper running of the web servers situated in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can supply the necessary electrical power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
