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