UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the correct functioning of the machines situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so if 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 deliver the required electrical power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
