The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functioning if there are problems with the primary power source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the machine functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery that's attached to the server and to the electricity network constantly, so in the event of any interruption, it's already working, that permits the hosting server to carry on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up an entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power problem.
