UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery used to power a PC or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of info when the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much 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 operation of all the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works constantly, it offers the necessary power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, because it gives them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
