UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power a PC or a web server to avoid the loss of information when the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the continuous functioning of all the servers located there. Since the UPS works at all times, it offers the required power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it provides them with plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
