UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a web server to avoid the loss of info in case the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant functioning of all of the servers located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
