UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power a PC or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of information in case the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. 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 functioning of all the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates all the time, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
