The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server operational in case there are difficulties with the main power source - a disruption or shaky current that can't keep the server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery that's attached to the web server and to the power network consistently, so in the case of any interruption, it's already working, which allows the server to keep on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power problem.
