UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery which is used to power a PC or a hosting server to prevent the loss of info when the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the continuous running of all of the servers located there. As the UPS works all the time, it provides the desired 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 hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
