UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the appropriate running of the machines located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so when 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 provide you with the necessary power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
