The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functional in case there are issues with the primary power source - a disruption or unstable current which cannot keep the web server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery which is attached to the server and to the electric power network at all times, so in the case of any disruption, it's already operating, that permits the server to continue working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS which gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power issue.
