UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their function and why are they available in data center facilities worldwide?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the servers located within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can give you the required energy to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
