The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server functional in case there are difficulties with the primary power source - an outage or unreliable current that cannot keep the server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery which is attached to the hosting server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in case of any blackout, it's already working, which allows the server to continue running 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 is the UPS which provides this time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.
