UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a web server to prevent the loss of info if the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. 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 uninterrupted running of all the machines located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it offers the desired power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is vital for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, as it provides them with ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
