UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their job and why are they available in data centers worldwide?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery that is used to power a computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of data in case the main source of energy fails for whatever reason 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 main power source and to guarantee the constant running of all of the machines located there. Because the UPS works at all times, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is critical for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the event of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
