UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct running of the machines located in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers consistently, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can provide the needed electrical power to keep the machines operational 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 power supply is restored.
