The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server working if there are troubles with the main source - an interruption or unreliable current that can't keep the server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery which is connected to the server and to the electricity network all of the time, so if there is any disruption, it's already operating, which allows the web server to carry on doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. Those two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power problem.
