The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server operational if there are issues with the main source - a disruption or shaky current which cannot keep the machine working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery that's attached to the server and to the power network at all times, so in case of any disturbance, it is already operating, which allows the web server to carry on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.
