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 hosting server to avoid the loss of info if the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the consistent running of all of the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates all the time, it offers the required power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is essential for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it provides them with lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
