UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they found in every data center?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting companies in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper operation of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can supply the needed electrical power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
