UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct operation 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's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can give you the required electrical power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
