UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their role and why are they available in data center facilities everywhere around the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a web server operational in case there are troubles with the primary power source - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the hosting server functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, an effective battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case there is any blackout, it's already functioning, which enables the web server to carry on doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected power problem.
