UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they found in every data center?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server operational if there are issues with the main source - an outage or shaky current that can't keep the machine functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, an effective battery which is connected to the server and to the power network at all times, so in case there is any blackout, it's already functioning, which enables the hosting server to keep on doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power issue.
