UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their job and why are they available in data center facilities all over the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the correct operation of the machines based in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers at all times, so if the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide you with the required electric power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In case of 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.
