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 hosting server to prevent the loss of data when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant functioning of all of the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs all the time, it offers the desired power for the 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 service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
