UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery used to power a personal computer or a server to prevent the loss of information when the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the consistent running of all the servers located there. Because the UPS runs constantly, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is vital for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it offers them enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
