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 primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the correct functioning of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can give you the needed electric power to keep the machines functioning 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 main source is restored.
