UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery that is used to power a PC or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of data when the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less 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 running of all of the machines located there. As the UPS operates at all times, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it gives them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
