The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server working if there are issues with the primary source - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery that is connected to the web server and to the electricity network all the time, so in case there is any blackout, it is already working, which enables the web server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power problem.
