UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their function and why are they available in data center facilities anywhere in the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are troubles with the main power source - a disruption or unstable current that cannot keep the web server working correctly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery that is attached to the hosting server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the event of any blackout, it's already working, that permits the web server to carry on running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it's the UPS that provides that time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power issue.
