UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power a computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of information if the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-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. Due to the fact that the UPS works all the time, it offers the necessary power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
