The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server working in case there are problems with the primary power source - a disruption or unreliable current which cannot keep the web server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the power network constantly, so in case there is any disruption, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to carry on doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power issue.
