UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of data in case the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown 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 main power source and to ensure the constant functioning of all the servers located there. As the UPS works at all times, it offers the desired power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is vital for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
