UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the correct operation of the machines located within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can give you the needed electric power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
