UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery that is used to power a computer or a web server to prevent the loss of information when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the uninterrupted operation of all of the servers located there. As the UPS runs at all times, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case there is a power surge or outage, as it offers them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
