UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why are they found in each and every data center facility?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server functional in case there are problems with the primary power source - an interruption or shaky current which cannot keep the server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in simple terms, an efficient battery that's connected to the server and to the electric power network all the time, so if there is any disturbance, it is already working, which enables the server to carry on doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which gives it this time. These 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.
