UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their role and why are they available in data center facilities anywhere in the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server working in case there are issues with the primary source - a disruption or unreliable current that can't keep the machine functioning properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, a powerful battery which is attached to the web server and to the power network all of the time, so in the event of any blackout, it is already operating, which enables the server to keep on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up an entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which gives it this time. These two power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power issue.
