UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in each and every data center?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting providers in their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the correct operation of the web servers based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can supply the necessary energy to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
