The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server working if there are issues with the primary power source - an interruption or shaky current which cannot keep the web server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the power network constantly, so in case there is any disturbance, it's already operating, which enables the server to carry on operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power issue.
