UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power a PC or a hosting server to prevent the loss of data if the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the constant operation of all of the web servers located there. As the UPS runs constantly, it offers the necessary power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
