UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power a computer or a web server to prevent the loss of data when the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the continuous operation of all the servers located there. Since the UPS works constantly, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
