The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server functioning in case there are troubles with the main power supply - an outage or shaky current that cannot keep the web server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that is connected to the web server and to the electricity network all of the time, so if there is any disruption, it is already functioning, which allows the server to carry on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power problem.
