The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server working if there are issues with the main source - a disruption or unstable current which cannot keep the web server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, a highly effective battery which is connected to the web server and to the electric power network consistently, so in the case of any disruption, it is already working, which enables the web server to carry on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power problem.
