UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery which is used to power a computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of information when the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the consistent operation of all the servers located there. Since the UPS works constantly, it provides the necessary power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, since it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
