UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery used to power a computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of info if the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the consistent functioning of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates constantly, it provides the desired power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it offers them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
