UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Know more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each and every hosting data center includes them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are issues with the primary power supply - a disruption or unstable current that cannot keep the server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an efficient battery that is connected to the web server and to the power network at all times, so in case there is any interruption, it's already working, which allows the hosting server to keep on operating without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electrical power issue.
