UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the required energy to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
