UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they present in every data center facility?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server working in case there are troubles with the main source - a disruption or unreliable current which cannot keep the server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a powerful battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the electric power network all of the time, so if there is any disturbance, it is already working, that permits the hosting server to continue operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.
