UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a web server to avoid the loss of data in case the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the constant running of all of the servers located there. As the UPS operates constantly, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
