UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power a PC or a web server to prevent the loss of information in case the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the continuous operation of all the machines located there. Because the UPS operates at all times, it offers the required power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is crucial for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it gives them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
