UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the proper operation of the machines based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers all of the time, so if 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 required electric power to keep the servers 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 source is restored.
