UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a server to avoid the loss of data if the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the constant operation of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works constantly, it provides the desired power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
