The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server operational in case there are troubles with the main power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the electric power network all of the time, so in case there is any interruption, it is already working, which enables the server to carry on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up an entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power problem.
