UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery used to power some type of computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of information when the main power source fails for some 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 ensure the consistent running of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS works at all times, it offers the desired power for the web servers to remain functioning 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 the case of a power surge or outage, as it offers them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
