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?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a server working in case there are troubles with the main power supply - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the hosting server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery that is connected to the web server and to the electric power network consistently, so in the case of any disruption, it is already working, that permits the web server to carry on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides this time. These 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to stop data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power issue.
