UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of info if the main power source fails for some 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 operation of all of the servers located there. As the UPS works at all times, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
