The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server working in case there are difficulties with the main power source - an interruption or shaky current that cannot keep the machine working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, a powerful battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the power network at all times, so in case there is any disturbance, it's already functioning, which allows the server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power issue.
