UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What precisely a diesel backup generator? Why are they found in each and every data center facility?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power a PC or a hosting server to avoid the loss of information when the main power supply fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the uninterrupted functioning of all the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works all the time, it provides the required power for the servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it gives them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
