The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functioning if there are issues with the main power supply - a disruption or unstable current that can't keep the server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery that's attached to the web server and to the electric power network at all times, so in case of any disruption, it is already functioning, which enables the server to carry on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. Those two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power issue.
