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