UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in every data center facility?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That's a battery used to power your personal computer or a server in order to avoid the loss of information when the main power source fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to ensure the uninterrupted running of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates constantly, it offers the required power for the web servers to remain functioning until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is crucial for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the event of a power surge or outage, as it provides them with lots of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
