UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of info if the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. 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 consistent functioning of all the web servers located there. Because the UPS runs constantly, it offers the necessary power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is critical for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
