UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What precisely a diesel backup generator? Why are they found in each and every data center facility?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting companies within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the appropriate running of the servers located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide the required electric power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
