UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the correct operation of the web servers located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the required electric power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
