The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functioning if there are difficulties with the main power supply - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery that's attached to the web server and to the electric power network constantly, so in the event of any blackout, it's already functioning, which allows the hosting server to continue running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or service provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power problem.
