The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server operational if there are difficulties with the primary power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the machine working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that is connected to the web server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the case of any blackout, it is already operating, that permits the hosting server to keep on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.
