UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a PC or a hosting server to prevent the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the continuous functioning of all the web servers located there. As the UPS operates constantly, it provides the desired power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is essential 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, since it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
