UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power a computer or a server to avoid the loss of info if the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the consistent functioning of all of the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates all the time, it offers the necessary power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is critical for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it gives them ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
