UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the servers based inside the facility. UPS is short 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 power network and the servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can provide you with the needed energy to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
