The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functioning if there are difficulties with the primary power supply - an outage or unreliable current that cannot keep the hosting server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery that's connected to the server and to the electric power network constantly, so if there is any disruption, it is already working, which allows the hosting server to keep on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up an entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which provides that time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.
