UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why are they present in each and every data center?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper operation of the web servers situated within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can provide the needed electrical power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
