UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a computer or a server to prevent the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the continuous operation of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates constantly, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is vital 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, because it offers them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
