UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they present in every data center?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to sustain the correct running of the servers located within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can supply the necessary power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
