UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their job and why are they available in data centers all over the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server functional in case there are troubles with the primary power supply - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that's attached to the web server and to the power network at all times, so in the case of any blackout, it's already working, which allows the web server to continue doing the job without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which gives it that time. Those two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power problem.
