UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their job and why are they available in data centers around the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the appropriate functioning of the servers based inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can deliver the required electric power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
