UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Discover more info on UPSs & diesel backup generators and discover why each and every hosting data center has them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are two devices for keeping a web server functional in case there are difficulties with the main power supply - an outage or shaky current that cannot keep the hosting server working correctly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery that's attached to the web server and to the power network at all times, so in case there is any disruption, it's already working, which enables the hosting server to carry on operating without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS that gives it that time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or service provider that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected power problem.
