UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the proper operation of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the necessary energy to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
