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 server to avoid the loss of data in case the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the consistent functioning of all the machines located there. Because the UPS operates all the time, it offers the desired power for the web servers to remain working 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 the event of a power surge or outage, as it offers them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
