UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery which is used to power a PC or a hosting server to avoid the loss of info when the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of all the machines located there.

Using this kind of a backup is a must for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it offers them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
