The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functional if there are problems with the primary power source - an outage or shaky current that cannot keep the machine functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery which is attached to the machine and to the electric power network at all times, so if there is any disruption, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to carry on working without losing any info. 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 that provides that time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.
