UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the correct running of the machines situated in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can supply the needed electrical power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case of 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.
