UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Learn more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each hosting data center features them.
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unsound and unable to support the correct functioning of the servers located within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers consistently, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can deliver the necessary power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
