UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in every single data center facility?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery that is used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of info if the main source of energy fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the continuous operation of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS operates constantly, it offers the required power for the machines to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
