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?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of data in case the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the uninterrupted operation of all of the web servers located there. Since the UPS runs at all times, it offers the required power for the machines to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is a must for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
