The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functioning if there are issues with the main source - an interruption or unreliable current which cannot keep the server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, an effective battery that is connected to the web server and to the power network all the time, so in case of any disturbance, it is already working, which allows the server to carry on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or service provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power problem.
