UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their job and why are they available in data center facilities everywhere around the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate operation of the servers based within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can give you the necessary electric power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
