UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power a computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. 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 guarantee the uninterrupted functioning of all of the web servers located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of 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 ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
