UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a web server to prevent the loss of information in case the main power source fails for some reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator is more or less 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 operation of all of the machines located there. As the UPS runs at all times, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case there is a power surge or outage, since it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
