UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they found in every single data center?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server working if there are troubles with the primary power source - a disruption or unstable current that cannot keep the hosting server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, a highly effective battery which is connected to the web server and to the electric power network at all times, so in the event of any interruption, it is already operating, which enables the server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power problem.
