UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they present in every single data center facility?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting companies inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can provide the needed electric power to keep the servers functioning for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
