UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of information when the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator is more or less 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 uninterrupted running of all the servers located there. Because the UPS operates 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 critical for any data center or service provider 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.
