UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the proper running of the servers located within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can give you the needed power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
