UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their role and why are they available in data center facilities all around the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting companies within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate running of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can deliver the needed power to keep the servers up and running 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 main power supply is restored.
