UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their role and why are they available in data center facilities all around the globe?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate operation of the machines located within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can give you the necessary electrical power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
