UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Understand a lot more about UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each and every hosting data center has them.
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting companies within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper functioning of the servers situated within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the web servers all of the time, 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 literally an engine that can provide the required electrical power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.
