The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a web server working in case there are problems with the primary source - an interruption or shaky current that cannot keep the web server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the power network all the time, so in the event of any interruption, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to keep on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS that provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.
