The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server working if there are issues with the primary power source - a disruption or unstable current that can't keep the hosting server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, an effective battery which is connected to the machine and to the power network constantly, so in case there is any blackout, it's already functioning, which enables the server to keep on running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power issue.
