UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of data when the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the consistent running of all the servers located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it offers the necessary power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
