The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server working if there are problems with the main power source - an outage or unreliable current that can't keep the hosting server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery which is attached to the server and to the power network constantly, so if there is any blackout, it is already working, which allows the web server to carry on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power problem.
