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 main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the correct operation of the web servers based in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers consistently, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can provide you with the required energy to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
