UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why every hosting data center has them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server operational if there are problems with the main power source - an outage or shaky current that cannot keep the machine working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, even though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that's connected to the web server and to the electric power network at all times, so if there is any disruption, it's already functioning, which enables the web server to keep on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up a whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which provides this time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage caused by an unexpected electric power problem.
