UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a web server to prevent the loss of data if the main power supply 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 constant operation of all of the servers located there. As the UPS operates at all times, it offers the required power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
