UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why are they present in each and every data center?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting companies inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to support the correct functioning of the web servers located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide you with the necessary power to keep the servers 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 primary power supply is restored.
