The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server functional if there are issues with the primary power source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the web server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, an effective battery that is connected to the server and to the electricity network consistently, so if there is any interruption, it is already operating, which enables the web server to carry on operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.
