The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server working in case there are difficulties with the main power source - a disruption or shaky current that can't keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the electric power network all of the time, so in the case of any disturbance, it's already functioning, which allows the hosting server to continue operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power problem.
