UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to support the appropriate functioning of the servers based in the facility. UPS stands 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 all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide the necessary electrical power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
