UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to support the proper operation of the machines located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can supply the necessary electrical power to keep the servers operational 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 power source is restored.
