UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct operation of the machines situated within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can give you the required energy to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
