UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of information if the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of all of the machines located there. Because the UPS works constantly, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it offers them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
