UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery used to power a computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of data when the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unstable.

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