The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server working in case there are troubles with the primary power supply - a disruption or unstable current that can't keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery which is attached to the web server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the event of any interruption, it is already working, that permits the web server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It does take 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 information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power issue.
