UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the machines located within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the necessary electric power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
