The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functioning in case there are difficulties with the primary power source - an interruption or shaky current which cannot keep the machine functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery which is connected to the server and to the electric power network at all times, so in case of any blackout, it's already working, which allows the server to keep on doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.
