The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server working if there are difficulties with the primary power supply - a disruption or unstable current which cannot keep the machine working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the power network constantly, so if there is any disruption, it is already working, which allows the web server to continue operating without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. These 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power issue.
