The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server operational if there are problems with the primary power supply - a disruption or unreliable current which cannot keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery which is connected to the server and to the power network all of the time, so in case there is any disturbance, it is already operating, that permits the web server to continue running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. Those 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 electric power issue.
