The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server working if there are troubles with the primary power supply - an interruption or shaky current that cannot keep the hosting server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that's attached to the hosting server and to the power network constantly, so in the case of any blackout, it's already working, that permits the hosting server to continue operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. Those two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power issue.
