UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of information if 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 main power source and to ensure the consistent functioning of all the machines located there. Because the UPS operates all the time, it provides the required power for the machines to remain functioning 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, since it provides them with lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
