UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their role and why are they available in data centers everywhere around the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the machines located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can give you the necessary power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
