UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct operation of the machines based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can supply the necessary energy to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. If 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 supply is restored.
