UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a PC or a hosting server to prevent the loss of info when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator is more or less 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 uninterrupted operation of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs at all times, it offers the required power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is crucial for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it gives them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
