UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery that is used to power your personal computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of information if the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the constant running of all the web servers located there. As the UPS operates at all times, it provides the required power for the machines to remain working 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 info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it offers them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
