UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery used to power some type of computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of info when the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the continuous functioning of all of the web servers located there. As the UPS runs all the time, it offers the required power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
