UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the required power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In the 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.
