The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server functional in case there are troubles with the main power supply - a disruption or unstable current that cannot keep the web server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery that's connected to the web server and to the electric power network all of the time, so in case of any disturbance, it's already functioning, which allows the web server to keep on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power issue.
