UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in each and every data center facility?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a web server operational if there are issues with the main power supply - an outage or unreliable current that can't keep the machine working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that is connected to the server and to the power network at all times, so in case there is any disruption, it is already working, that permits the hosting server to carry on operating without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.
