UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery which is used to power a PC or a web server in order to avoid the loss of data if the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the constant operation of all the web servers located there. Since the UPS operates at all times, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is vital for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
