UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a web server to prevent the loss of data when the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. 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 guarantee the continuous running of all the machines located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is a must for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it gives them ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
