The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server operational if there are troubles with the main power supply - an interruption or unstable current that cannot keep the hosting server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, an effective battery that is connected to the hosting server and to the power network at all times, so in the event of any disruption, it's already functioning, which allows the web server to continue running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides that time. These 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power problem.
