The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server functioning in case there are problems with the primary power source - a disruption or shaky current that can't keep the hosting server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that is attached to the machine and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the case of any disruption, it is already working, which enables the web server to keep on working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up an entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.
