UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct operation of the web servers based in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers consistently, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can give you the required energy to keep the web servers functioning 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 primary source is restored.
