UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the servers based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can give you the required power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
