UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power a computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of info if the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. 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 ensure the consistent running of all of the web servers located there. As the UPS runs constantly, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
