UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the correct functioning of the machines based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can supply the needed electrical power to keep the web servers functioning 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 source is restored.
