UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power a PC or a server in order to avoid the loss of data in case the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the uninterrupted operation of all the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works constantly, it offers the necessary power for the servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is a must for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
