The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server operational if there are difficulties with the primary power supply - an outage or unstable current that can't keep the web server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the electricity network at all times, so in the case of any blackout, it's already working, which allows the web server to carry on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.
