UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their role and why are they available in data center facilities around the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a server working in case there are troubles with the primary power source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, a highly effective battery which is connected to the web server and to the electricity network all of the time, so in the event of any disruption, it's already working, that permits the server to carry on running without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS that gives it this time. These 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.
