UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their job and why are they available in data center facilities around the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functioning in case there are difficulties with the primary power source - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the web server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, an efficient battery that's connected to the hosting server and to the electricity network all the time, so in the case of any blackout, it is already working, which allows the web server to keep on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS which gives it this time. Those two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.
