UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they found in each and every data center facility?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the correct functioning of the web servers based in the facility. UPS refers to 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 servers consistently, 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 certainly an engine that can provide the needed energy to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the event 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.
