UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery which is used to power a computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of info when the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. 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 operation of all the servers located there. Since the UPS operates all the time, it provides the required power for the servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is a must for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it provides them with enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
