UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to support the proper operation of the servers situated in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's 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 anytime the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the needed power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the 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.
