UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the proper running of the servers situated within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can give you the needed electrical power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
