The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server operational in case there are difficulties with the main power supply - an outage or unreliable current that cannot keep the machine functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the power network at all times, so in case there is any interruption, it is already working, which allows the hosting server to continue operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it this time. These 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power problem.
