UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power a computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of data when the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically 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 uninterrupted running of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works at all times, it offers the desired power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info 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 primary power supply is restored.
