UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the correct functioning of the servers situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers consistently, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can supply the necessary power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
