UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to support the appropriate operation of the servers situated within the facility. UPS is short for 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 web servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the required electrical power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
