UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power a PC or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data if the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the constant running of all the web servers located there. Since the UPS operates constantly, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is vital for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
