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 prevent the loss of information if the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. 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 guarantee the continuous running of all the web servers located there. Since the UPS operates all the time, it provides the required power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is critical for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it offers them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
