UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power a PC or a server in order to avoid the loss of information when the main power supply 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 constant running of all the servers located there. Since the UPS works constantly, it offers the necessary power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is vital for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it offers them enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
