The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server operational in case there are troubles with the main power source - an outage or unstable current that can't keep the hosting server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery which is attached to the web server and to the electric power network constantly, so if there is any blackout, it's already operating, which enables the hosting server to continue working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power issue.
