UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a PC or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. 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 continuous running of all the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates constantly, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
