UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their job and why are they available in data centers all around the globe?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the appropriate functioning of the machines located in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can give you the necessary power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
