UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate operation of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide the needed energy to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
