UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the correct operation of the web servers situated inside 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 servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can provide the required electric power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
