The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server functional if there are difficulties with the main power supply - an interruption or shaky current that can't keep the web server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery which is connected to the server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the event of any disturbance, it is already working, which allows the hosting server to keep on running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power issue.
