UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their function and why are they available in data centers all around the globe?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery that is used to power some type of computer or a server to prevent the loss of info in case the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the continuous operation of all the servers located there. As the UPS operates all the time, it offers the desired power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in the event of a power surge or outage, because it offers them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
