UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) are devices that provides battery backup when the electrical power fails, drops or spikes to an unacceptable voltage level. Small UPS systems provide power for a few minutes; enough to power down a computer in an orderly manner, while larger systems have enough battery for several hours. In mission critical datacenters, UPS systems are generally used for just a few minutes until electrical generators take over.
UPS systems can be set up to alert file servers to shut down in an orderly manner when an outage has occurred, and the batteries are running out.
