The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server working if there are problems with the main power source - an interruption or unstable current that can't keep the hosting server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery which is attached to the hosting server and to the power network all the time, so in the event of any blackout, it's already functioning, which enables the web server to carry on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.
