UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting companies inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper running of the servers located in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide you with the required power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
