UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery which is used to power a computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data when the main power supply fails for some 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 main power source and to guarantee the uninterrupted running of all of the machines located there. As the UPS runs constantly, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is vital for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
