The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functional if there are problems with the primary source - an interruption or unreliable current that can't keep the hosting server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery which is attached to the server and to the electric power network constantly, so in the event of any disruption, it is already working, that permits the server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides this time. These 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or service provider that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power problem.
