The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server functional if there are problems with the main power source - a disruption or shaky current which cannot keep the server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery which is connected to the server and to the electric power network constantly, so in case of any disturbance, it is already operating, which allows the hosting server to keep on working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power problem.
