The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functional in case there are troubles with the primary source - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery which is connected to the server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in case there is any disturbance, it is already operating, which allows the server to keep on operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.
