UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of information when the main power supply fails for some 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 main power source and to guarantee the continuous operation of all of the machines located there. Because the UPS runs constantly, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is critical for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, since it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
