UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their role and why are they available in data center facilities all over the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the servers situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can provide you with the needed energy to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
