UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the machines based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers consistently, so if 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 that can provide the needed energy to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
