UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the correct operation of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can supply the needed power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
