The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server working in case there are difficulties with the primary power source - a disruption or shaky current which cannot keep the hosting server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery that's connected to the server and to the electric power network consistently, so if there is any interruption, it is already functioning, which enables the server to continue operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. These 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power problem.
