UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the correct functioning 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's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the needed electric power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event 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.
