UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a server to avoid the loss of information in case the main power supply 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 power supply and to guarantee the constant running of all of the machines located there. Because the UPS works constantly, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
