The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functional in case there are troubles with the main power supply - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the machine working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery which is attached to the machine and to the power network all the time, so if there is any blackout, it's already functioning, which enables the hosting server to carry on working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power problem.
