UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the correct functioning of the web servers situated in 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 electric power network and the servers consistently, so in case 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 supply the required power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
