UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate operation of the web servers located in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide you with the needed energy to keep the machines up and running 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 primary power supply is restored.
