UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate operation of the machines located inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the required electric power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
