The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functional in case there are troubles with the main source - an outage or shaky current that cannot keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the electric power network all the time, so in case of any interruption, it's already operating, which allows the hosting server to keep on running 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 is the UPS that provides that time. These 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or service provider that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power problem.
