UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a web server to prevent the loss of data if the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unstable. 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 uninterrupted operation of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it provides the required power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is a must for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
