UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of info in case the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of all of the web servers located there.

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