UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a web server to avoid the loss of info when the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the consistent operation of all of the web servers located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it offers the desired power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case there is a power surge or outage, as it provides them with enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
