UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data if the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown 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 and to guarantee the constant functioning of all of the servers located there. Since the UPS operates at all times, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
