UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in every data center facility?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of data in case the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes risky. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the consistent functioning of all of the web servers located there. Because the UPS operates all the time, it provides the desired power for the servers to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with ample time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
