UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of data when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the continuous functioning of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it offers the necessary power for the web 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 provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, because it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
