UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in every data center facility?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper running of the servers based inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the needed electrical power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power supply is restored.
