UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they present in every single data center?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server functioning in case there are troubles with the primary source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the web server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, an efficient battery that is attached to the web server and to the electric power network all of the time, so in the event of any interruption, it's already operating, which enables the hosting server to carry on operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS which provides this time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electrical power issue.
