UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Understand more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why each hosting data center offers them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server working if there are difficulties with the primary power source - an interruption or unreliable current which cannot keep the web server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that is attached to the web server and to the power network all of the time, so in case there is any disturbance, it's already working, which allows the server to continue running without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up the entire data center. It needs some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power issue.
