UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a server to prevent the loss of info when the main power supply fails for reasons unknown or becomes unstable. 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 ensure the uninterrupted running of all the machines located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works at all times, it provides the desired power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is crucial for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it gives them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
