UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate operation of the servers located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can provide you with the necessary energy to keep the servers working 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 power source is restored.
