UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? Why are they found in each and every data center facility?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power a computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of info when the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the continuous operation of all the web servers located there. As the UPS runs constantly, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
