UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of information in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown 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 power and to ensure the consistent functioning of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS runs constantly, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is a must for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, because it offers them enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
