UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of information if the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the constant operation of all the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs all the time, it provides the required power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is critical 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 lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
