UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper operation of the machines situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can give you the needed electric power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
