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