UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the appropriate operation of the machines located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the required electric power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
