UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of info if the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the consistent functioning of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works all the time, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is a must for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
