UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery which is used to power a PC or a web server to prevent the loss of info in case the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of all the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates constantly, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, since it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
