UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a server to prevent the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically 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 of the servers located there. Since the UPS runs constantly, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
