The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server functioning in case there are issues with the main power source - an interruption or shaky current that can't keep the server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is connected to the machine and to the electricity network consistently, so in the event of any blackout, it's already operating, that permits the web server to keep on working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power problem.
