The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functioning if there are difficulties with the primary power source - an interruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, an effective battery which is attached to the server and to the electricity network at all times, so in case of any blackout, it's already working, which allows the web server to carry on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power issue.
