UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery which is used to power your personal computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of data when the main source of energy fails for some reason 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 guarantee the continuous operation of all the machines located there. As the UPS works all the time, it provides the necessary power for the servers to remain operational 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 data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
