The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server working if there are problems with the primary power supply - an interruption or unstable current that cannot keep the machine working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery that is connected to the server and to the electric power network constantly, so in the case of any disturbance, it is already functioning, that permits the web server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power problem.
