The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server operational if there are problems with the primary power source - an outage or unstable current that can't keep the machine working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery which is attached to the server and to the power network at all times, so in case of any disruption, it is already operating, which allows the web server to continue operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which provides that time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.
