UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What precisely a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they found in every data center facility?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate running of the servers located in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide you with the needed electric power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
