UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery that is used to power a PC or a server to prevent the loss of data in case the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes risky. 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 ensure the consistent functioning of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works all the time, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is a must for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it gives them enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
