UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in each and every data center?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two instruments for keeping a server operational in case there are problems with the main power source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the machine functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, basically, an efficient battery which is connected to the hosting server and to the electric power network constantly, so in the event of any disturbance, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS that provides this time. These two power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power issue.
