UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their job and why are they available in data centers everywhere around the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the appropriate operation of the machines located in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can provide you with the needed power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
