The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server operational in case there are issues with the primary power source - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the hosting server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery which is attached to the web server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case of any disturbance, it is already operating, which allows the server to keep on working 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's the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.
