The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server functional if there are troubles with the primary power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in case of any disruption, it's already operating, which enables the web server to keep on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides this time. These 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power problem.
