The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functional if there are issues with the main power source - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is attached to the web server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the case of any disturbance, it is already working, which enables the web server to carry on doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.
