UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Know more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why every hosting data center has them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 instruments for keeping a web server working in case there are problems with the main power supply - an interruption or unstable current that cannot keep the hosting server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is sometimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, in simple terms, an effective battery that is attached to the web server and to the electricity network at all times, so if there is any blackout, it is already operating, that permits the web server to carry on working without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It does take some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides that time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power problem.
