The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server operational if there are difficulties with the main power supply - an interruption or unstable current which cannot keep the hosting server functioning properly, for example. 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, a powerful battery that's attached to the machine and to the electricity network at all times, so in the case of any disruption, it's already working, that permits the web server to continue operating without losing any information. 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 that gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power issue.
