UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the correct operation of the machines situated in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so if the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can provide the necessary power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
