UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power a computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of info when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the consistent operation of all of the machines located there. Because the UPS runs constantly, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is vital for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case there is a power surge or outage, since it offers them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
