UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power a computer or a server to avoid the loss of data in case the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unstable. 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 ensure the consistent functioning of all of the web servers located there. Because the UPS runs at all times, it offers the desired 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 hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, since it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
