UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery used to power a personal computer or a server to avoid the loss of information if the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the continuous functioning of all of the servers located there. Because the UPS works all the time, it provides the desired power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it gives them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
