UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power a PC or a web server to prevent the loss of data in case the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the consistent running of all of the machines located there. As the UPS operates at all times, it provides the necessary power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is critical for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
