The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server functioning in case there are difficulties with the primary power supply - an interruption or unreliable current which cannot keep the hosting server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an effective battery that's attached to the server and to the electric power network constantly, so in the case of any disturbance, it's already operating, that permits the hosting server to keep on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power problem.
