UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown 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 supply and to guarantee the uninterrupted functioning of all the servers located there. Because the UPS runs all the time, it offers the required power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, as it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
