The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server operational if there are difficulties with the main power supply - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is attached to the server and to the power network consistently, so if there is any interruption, it is already functioning, which enables the web server to continue operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power problem.
