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