UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What is a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they found in every data center facility?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power some type of computer or a web server in order to avoid the loss of info if the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the constant functioning of all of the web servers located there. Because the UPS runs at all times, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is a must for any data center or web hosting provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, since it gives them ample time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
