The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server operational if there are difficulties with the main source - an interruption or unstable current that can't keep the web server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that is attached to the web server and to the electricity network all the time, so in case of any interruption, it's already working, which allows the hosting server to continue running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that provides this time. Those two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power issue.
