UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a server to prevent the loss of info if the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the consistent running of all the machines located there. As the UPS operates constantly, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is crucial for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it gives them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
