UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power some type of computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of info if the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically 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 operation of all the machines located there.

Using this type of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
