UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power a PC or a server to prevent the loss of info when the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS operates constantly, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
