The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functional if there are difficulties with the main power supply - a disruption or shaky current that cannot keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that's connected to the web server and to the electric power network at all times, so in the event of any interruption, it's already operating, that permits the hosting server to carry on running without losing any information. 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 which provides this time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.
