The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functional in case there are troubles with the primary power source - an outage or unstable current that cannot keep the server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an effective battery which is attached to the hosting server and to the electric power network constantly, so in case of any disruption, it's already operating, that permits the server to keep on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electric power problem.
