UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a server to avoid the loss of info if the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the continuous running of all the machines located there. Since the UPS works at all times, it offers the necessary power for the servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is crucial for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, since it offers them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
