UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why each hosting data center has them.
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the appropriate operation of the machines based within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers consistently, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can deliver the needed electrical power to keep the web servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.
