The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server working in case there are issues with the primary power source - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the machine functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that is attached to the web server and to the power network consistently, so in case of any interruption, it's already functioning, that permits the server to continue working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides that time. Those two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power problem.
