UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power a PC or a server to avoid the loss of info in case the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. 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 operation of all the web servers located there. Because the UPS operates at all times, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
