The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server working in case there are troubles with the primary power supply - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the hosting server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an effective battery that's attached to the hosting server and to the power network all the time, so in the event of any interruption, it's already functioning, which allows the web server to carry on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power problem.
