UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the appropriate operation of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the required electric power to keep the servers up and running 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 power source is restored.
