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?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery used to power a computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of data if the main power source fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator practically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power supply and to guarantee the continuous operation of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS works constantly, it provides the necessary power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is crucial for any data center or hosting company that wants to keep their hardware and data intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it gives them lots of time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
