UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power a PC or a server to prevent the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. 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 constant running of all of the servers located there. As the UPS works constantly, it offers the required power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
