UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their role and why are they available in data center facilities all over the world?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery used to power your personal computer or a web server to prevent 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 ensure the constant operation of all the servers located there. Since the UPS runs all the time, it provides the desired power for the servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is essential for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
