UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Discover more details on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each hosting data center has them.
The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a web server operational if there are issues with the main source - an interruption or shaky current that cannot keep the server functioning properly, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it is oftentimes called Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, in essence, a highly effective battery that is connected to the hosting server and to the power network all of the time, so in case of any blackout, it's already working, which enables the web server to continue doing the job without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. Those 2 power solutions are a necessity for any facility or provider that wants to avoid data loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power issue.
