UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting service 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 proper running of the machines located within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can deliver the needed energy to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
