UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in every data center facility?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server operational in case there are difficulties with the main power supply - an interruption or unstable current that can't keep the hosting server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, a highly effective battery that's connected to the server and to the electricity network at all times, so if there is any interruption, it's already functioning, which enables the server to continue doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power problem.
