The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a server functioning in case there are issues with the main power source - an outage or unstable current which cannot keep the machine working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery that is attached to the machine and to the electric power network all the time, so in the case of any disturbance, it is already functioning, which allows the server to continue running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up an entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power problem.
