UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the web servers based within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can deliver the necessary energy to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. If 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.
