UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the proper operation of the machines based in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, so when 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 which can provide the necessary electrical power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. If there is 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.
