UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Understand more info on UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why each hosting data center has them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server operational in case there are problems with the main source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the hosting server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery which is connected to the machine and to the power network constantly, so in the event of any disruption, it's already operating, which enables the server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up the entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which gives it that time. These 2 power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected power issue.
