UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their function and why are they available in data centers all over the world?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It is a battery used to power a personal computer or a hosting server in order to avoid the loss of information in case the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the consistent functioning of all of the machines located there. Since the UPS works all the time, it provides the necessary power for the servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is vital for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case of a power surge or outage, as it gives them plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
