The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server functional if there are difficulties with the main power source - an interruption or unstable current that can't keep the hosting server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery that is connected to the machine and to the power network all the time, so in case of any disruption, it's already functioning, which enables the web server to keep on doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power problem.
