UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What precisely a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they present in every data center?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server functioning in case there are issues with the main power source - an outage or unstable current which cannot keep the server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery which is attached to the hosting server and to the power network constantly, so in the case of any blackout, it's already functioning, which allows the server to continue running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides this time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop info loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power problem.
