UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a server to prevent the loss of information in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the continuous operation of all of the web servers located there. As the UPS works all the time, it offers the necessary power for the servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
