UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate functioning of the servers located inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide you with the required electrical power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
