UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data in case the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. 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 guarantee the constant running of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it gives them ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
