UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their function and why are they available in data center facilities anywhere in the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server operational in case there are difficulties with the primary power supply - an outage or unreliable current that cannot keep the web server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is sometimes called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery which is attached to the web server and to the electricity network constantly, so in case of any blackout, it's already working, that permits the web server to keep on operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent info loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power issue.
