UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What precisely a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they found in each and every data center facility?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a web server operational in case there are troubles with the main power source - an outage or unstable current that can't keep the server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that is attached to the server and to the power network at all times, so in case of any blackout, it is already operating, that permits the web server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides this time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power problem.
