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