UPS

UPS, in computer terms, stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply. In a data centre, UPS power means that all power is fed through a battery of sorts. In the event of a power failure, the UPS will continue to feed power to the network and servers while data centre staff correct the problem or start up alternative power sources such as diesel generators. Having an Uninterruptible Power Supply in place helps to ensure maximum uptime.
