The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server functioning if there are issues with the main power source - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the hosting server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery that's attached to the server and to the power network at all times, so in case of any disturbance, it is already operating, that permits the hosting server to carry on doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. These 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.

This way, the functionality of your sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service all the time.
