UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their role and why are they available in data center facilities all around the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the appropriate operation of the servers situated within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide the required power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In the 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.
