UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a web server to prevent the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown 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 power supply and to ensure the constant functioning of all of the servers located there. Since the UPS operates all the time, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
