UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper operation of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can deliver the necessary electrical power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In case of 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.
