UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the servers based within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the needed energy to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
