UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their function and why are they available in data center facilities all over the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the proper functioning of the web servers located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can provide you with the necessary electric power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
