UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the appropriate functioning of the machines located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can give you the needed electrical power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
