UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the correct running of the web servers situated in 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 electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can deliver the necessary electric power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
