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 in order to avoid the loss of info in case the main power source fails for whatever reason 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 power and to guarantee the uninterrupted functioning of all the web servers located there. As the UPS runs constantly, it provides the required power for the machines to remain operational 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 information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, as it offers them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
