UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
What's a UPS unit? What exactly is a diesel backup generator? For what reason are they found in every data center facility?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. This is a battery used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to prevent the loss of data in case the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the constant operation of all the web servers located there. As the UPS operates all the time, it provides the desired power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is a must for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case of a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
