UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting companies within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct operation of the servers based in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can give you the needed electric power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
