UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery that is used to power a PC or a web server in order to avoid the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the constant operation of all the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works constantly, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is vital for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, because it offers them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
