UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate running of the servers located in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so in case 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 which can provide the required electrical power to keep the servers up and running 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 main power source is restored.
