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 prevent the loss of information when the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the consistent operation of all the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs constantly, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
