The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functional in case there are issues with the primary source - an interruption or shaky current which cannot keep the server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that's attached to the web server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the event of any disturbance, it's already working, which enables the server to keep on working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power issue.
