UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their job and why are they available in data center facilities worldwide?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery that is used to power a personal computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of information if the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the continuous running of all of the servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works all the time, it offers the necessary power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, since it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
