The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server operational in case there are issues with the main source - an outage or unstable current which cannot keep the hosting server 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, a powerful battery that is connected to the web server and to the electric power network constantly, so in case of any disturbance, it is already functioning, that permits the web server to carry on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS which gives it that time. Those two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power issue.
