UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of data if the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unstable.

Using this type of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, because it gives them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
