UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper running of the machines located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can give you the necessary energy to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
