UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a computer or a web server to prevent the loss of info in case the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant operation of all of the servers located there. Since the UPS operates all the time, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
