UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they found in each and every data center?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server working if there are difficulties with the main source - a disruption or unstable current that can't keep the server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery which is connected to the machine and to the electricity network consistently, so in case there is any disturbance, it is already functioning, which allows the server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up a whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides this time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power issue.
