UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? Why are they found in each and every data center?
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting service providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper operation of the machines situated in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can supply the required electrical power to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
