UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their role and why are they available in data center facilities everywhere around the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server functioning if there are issues with the main source - an interruption or shaky current that cannot keep the hosting server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery that's connected to the server and to the electric power network all of the time, so if there is any disruption, it is already operating, which enables the web server to carry on working without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it this time. These 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power problem.
