UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their job and why are they available in data centers everywhere around the world?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power a computer or a server to prevent the loss of data if the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the consistent functioning of all the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works constantly, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is critical for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
