UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting companies within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the servers situated in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can supply the necessary electrical power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
