The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server working if there are issues with the primary power supply - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the web server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, an efficient battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the event of any blackout, it is already functioning, that permits the server to continue running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power problem.
