The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server functional if there are problems with the primary power source - a disruption or unstable current that cannot keep the machine functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in case of any disturbance, it is already functioning, that permits the web server to continue working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides this time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power issue.
