The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server functional if there are difficulties with the primary power source - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the machine functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is connected to the web server and to the electric power network all the time, so if there is any disturbance, it's already working, that permits the server to keep on running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power issue.
