UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power some type of computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of data in case the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of all the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works constantly, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
