UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a web server to prevent the loss of data when the main power source fails for some 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 guarantee the uninterrupted running of all the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs all the time, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is vital for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
