UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a web server to prevent the loss of information when the main power supply fails for whatever 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 and to ensure the continuous operation of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS works constantly, it offers the desired power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it gives them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
