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 web server to avoid the loss of info 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 power and to ensure the consistent operation of all the machines located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is a must for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
