UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their function and why are they available in data center facilities all around the world?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery which is used to power a computer or a web server to prevent the loss of info when the main source of energy fails for whatever reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the consistent running of all the web servers located there. Because the UPS runs at all times, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is a must for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it offers them plenty of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
