The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server functioning in case there are issues with the main power supply - an interruption or shaky current that cannot keep the server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the electric power network constantly, so in the event of any disruption, it's already working, which allows the server to continue operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power problem.
