The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functional if there are difficulties with the main power source - an interruption or shaky current that can't keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery which is connected to the machine and to the electric power network all the time, so in case of any disruption, it is already functioning, which enables the hosting server to carry on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power problem.
