UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power a PC or a hosting server to avoid the loss of information if the main power supply fails for reasons unknown 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 functioning of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs all the time, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is a must for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
