UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the correct functioning of the servers situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, so anytime 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 an engine which can supply the needed power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
