The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server working in case there are problems with the main power supply - an outage or unreliable current that cannot keep the machine working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in essence, a powerful battery which is attached to the web server and to the electric power network constantly, so in case there is any disturbance, it is already functioning, which allows the web server to keep on operating without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.
