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 primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the proper operation of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can provide you with the necessary energy to keep the machines functioning 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 main source is restored.
