UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery that is used to power your personal computer or a web server to prevent the loss of data when the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the continuous functioning of all the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates at all times, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is crucial for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, since it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
