UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the proper functioning of the machines located inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the necessary energy to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In case there is 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.
