The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functional if there are issues with the main power supply - an interruption or unstable current that cannot keep the hosting server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in case of any blackout, it's already working, which allows the hosting server to carry on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.
