UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power a PC or a server to avoid the loss of info in case the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the continuous running of all the machines located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
