The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functioning if there are problems with the main power source - an interruption or unstable current that can't keep the hosting server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a powerful battery that's connected to the server and to the power network all of the time, so if there is any disruption, it's already working, which allows the server to keep on running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides this time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power issue.
