The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functional in case there are issues with the primary power supply - a disruption or shaky current that can't keep the machine functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery which is connected to the server and to the power network all the time, so if there is any blackout, it's already operating, that permits the web server to keep on working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power problem.
