UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery used to power a personal computer or a web server to prevent the loss of information in case the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of all of the web servers located there. As the UPS operates constantly, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, since it offers them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
