The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server working in case there are problems with the main power supply - an interruption or unstable current that can't keep the machine working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery which is attached to the web server and to the electricity network consistently, so in case of any disruption, it's already functioning, which allows the server to keep on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS which gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power issue.
