UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to support the appropriate operation of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the required power to keep the machines 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 primary source is restored.
