UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery used to power a PC or a server in order to avoid the loss of information if the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the constant running of all the machines located there. Since the UPS operates constantly, it offers the desired power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or service 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 provides them with lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
