The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server working if there are problems with the main power supply - an outage or unstable current that cannot keep the hosting server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery which is connected to the web server and to the power network consistently, so in the case of any disruption, it is already operating, which allows the web server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power problem.
