UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of information if the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much 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 running of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs constantly, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it offers them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
