UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a server to avoid the loss of info if the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the continuous running of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs at all times, it offers the desired power for the servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is crucial for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
