The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functional if there are issues with the main source - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the hosting server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, a highly effective battery which is connected to the web server and to the power network at all times, so in the event of any disturbance, it's already functioning, that permits the hosting server to keep on doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. Those two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power issue.
