UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power a personal computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the uninterrupted running of all of the web servers located there. Since the UPS works all the time, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is vital for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, because it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
