UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power a computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of information if the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. 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 supply and to ensure the uninterrupted running of all the web servers located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is crucial for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it offers them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
