UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power a personal computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of data if the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the consistent operation of all of the servers located there. As the UPS runs constantly, it provides the desired power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of 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.
