UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Understand a lot more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each hosting data center has them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a server functioning in case there are difficulties with the main power supply - an interruption or unreliable current which cannot keep the web server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery that's attached to the web server and to the electric power network constantly, so in case of any disruption, it is already operating, that permits the hosting server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are a requirement for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.
