UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? Why exactly are they present in every data center facility?
The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a server functional in case there are problems with the primary power source - an outage or unstable current which cannot keep the machine functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, an effective battery which is connected to the machine and to the electricity network all of the time, so if there is any blackout, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to continue working without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. These 2 power solutions are absolutely essential for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electrical power issue.
