The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functional in case there are difficulties with the primary source - an interruption or shaky current that can't keep the hosting server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, an effective battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the power network all the time, so in the event of any interruption, it is already working, which allows the web server to carry on running without losing any info. 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 this time. Those two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.
