UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery used to power a personal computer or a server to avoid the loss of information in case the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. 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 guarantee the uninterrupted functioning of all the servers located there. Since the UPS works all the time, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
