The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server operational in case there are issues with the main power source - a disruption or unreliable current that can't keep the machine working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery which is connected to the machine and to the power network all the time, so in the event of any blackout, it's already working, which enables the server to keep on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which provides this time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.
