The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server functional in case there are troubles with the main source - an interruption or shaky current that cannot keep the web server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery which is attached to the machine and to the electricity network all of the time, so if there is any blackout, it's already functioning, which allows the server to carry on running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS that provides this time. Those two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power problem.
