UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they found in every data center?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server operational if there are problems with the main power source - an interruption or unstable current which cannot keep the web server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery that is attached to the web server and to the power network constantly, so in the case of any disruption, it's already operating, which enables the server to continue running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that gives it this time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power problem.
