The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server working in case there are problems with the primary source - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the machine working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery which is connected to the server and to the electricity network consistently, so if there is any disruption, it is already working, which allows the hosting server to continue operating without losing any information. 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 that gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power issue.
