UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the servers based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers consistently, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the required electrical power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case 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.
