UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery used to power a computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data in case the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the continuous functioning of all of the web servers located there. Because the UPS works all the time, it provides the required power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is a must 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, since it gives them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
