The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a server functioning if there are problems with the main source - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery which is attached to the hosting server and to the electricity network at all times, so if there is any blackout, it's already functioning, which enables the server to keep on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power problem.
