The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server operational in case there are issues with the primary power source - an interruption or unstable current which cannot keep the machine functioning properly, 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 efficient battery that's attached to the machine and to the power network all the time, so in the case of any disruption, it is already functioning, which enables the web server to continue operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power problem.
