The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server functioning if there are problems with the primary power source - an outage or unstable current which cannot keep the machine functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery that is connected to the machine and to the electricity network all the time, so in case there is any interruption, it's already operating, which enables the hosting server to carry on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power problem.
