UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery used to power a computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of info if the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the continuous running of all of the machines located there. As the UPS works constantly, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it gives them ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
