UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct operation of the machines located in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so when 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 that can provide the needed electric power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
