The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server operational in case there are difficulties with the primary power supply - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the machine working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, a highly effective battery that is attached to the machine and to the electric power network all of the time, so in case of any disturbance, it is already operating, which allows the hosting server to carry on operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or service provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power problem.
