The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server operational if there are issues with the main power source - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the machine working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is connected to the server and to the electric power network consistently, so in the case of any disruption, it's already operating, which enables the hosting server to carry on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.
