The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are difficulties with the primary source - an interruption or unstable current that can't keep the server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that's attached to the machine and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the event of any interruption, it is already working, that permits the server to keep on doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power problem.
