The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are issues with the main source - an interruption or unreliable current that can't keep the web server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery that is connected to the machine and to the electricity network consistently, so in case there is any blackout, it's already functioning, that permits the hosting server to keep on operating without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides that time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power issue.
