UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what is their function and why are they available in data centers anywhere in the world?
The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a server functioning in case there are issues with the primary power supply - an interruption or shaky current which cannot keep the server working properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an efficient battery that is connected to the server and to the power network consistently, so in the event of any disturbance, it is already functioning, which allows the hosting server to carry on running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine which will power up an entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS that gives it this time. These two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or provider that wants to prevent information loss and hardware damage as a result of an unexpected electric power issue.
