UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of information when the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant functioning of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs at all times, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
