UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their job and why are they available in data centers around the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are troubles with the main power supply - an outage or unreliable current which cannot keep the machine working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that is connected to the server and to the electricity network at all times, so in case there is any disturbance, it's already working, that permits the hosting server to carry on doing the job without losing any information. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are fundamental for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.
