UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to support the appropriate running of the web servers located in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide you with the required electrical power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
