UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a PC or a web server in order to avoid the loss of info if the main power source fails for reasons unknown 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 ensure the constant operation of all of the web servers located there. As the UPS works constantly, it provides the necessary power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it offers them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
