The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server operational if there are issues with the primary power source - a disruption or shaky current which cannot keep the server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that's connected to the machine and to the electric power network at all times, so in the case of any blackout, it's already functioning, which enables the web server to continue running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides this time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power problem.
