UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the web servers located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can deliver the required power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
