The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server operational in case there are problems with the primary power source - an interruption or unstable current that cannot keep the web server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the power network consistently, so in the event of any blackout, it is already working, which enables the hosting server to continue running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS that provides that time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power issue.
