UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of information in case the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. 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 constant functioning of all the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works all the time, it offers the necessary power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is vital for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data 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 primary power supply is restored.
