UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why are they found in each and every data center facility?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power a personal computer or a web server to prevent the loss of info if the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the constant functioning of all of the web servers located there. Since the UPS works constantly, it offers the required power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it offers them lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
