UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct functioning of the servers situated inside 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 power network and the servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can deliver the needed electrical power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
