The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are troubles with the primary power source - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the machine functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery which is connected to the server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case of any blackout, it's already working, that permits the hosting server to continue working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power problem.
