UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power a personal computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of info if the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the constant running of all the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works at all times, it offers the required power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is critical for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it gives them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
