UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of data if the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the consistent functioning of all of the servers located there. Since the UPS works constantly, it provides the required power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
