UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? Why are they present in every single data center?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server functioning if there are issues with the main power source - an outage or unreliable current that cannot keep the machine functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that's attached to the server and to the power network consistently, so in case there is any interruption, it's already functioning, which allows the server to keep on operating without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides that time. Those two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power issue.
