UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What precisely a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they found in each and every data center?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery used to power a computer or a web server to prevent the loss of info if the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the uninterrupted operation of all the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS runs constantly, it provides the necessary power for the servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is vital for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it offers them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
