UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their function and why are they available in data centers around the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to support the correct functioning of the web servers based in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can provide the necessary power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
