UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a server to avoid the loss of information when the main power supply 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 and to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of all the servers located there. As the UPS operates constantly, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, because it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
