The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server functional in case there are problems with the primary source - a disruption or shaky current that cannot keep the server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the power network all of the time, so in the event of any disruption, it's already functioning, that permits the web server to keep on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. Those two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power issue.
