The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server operational if there are difficulties with the primary power source - an interruption or unstable current that can't keep the server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, a powerful battery that's attached to the server and to the electricity network all the time, so in case there is any disturbance, it's already functioning, which enables the web server to continue doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides this time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power problem.
