UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
Understand more info on UPSs & diesel backup generators and learn why each and every hosting data center offers them.
UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to support the appropriate running of the machines based in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can provide you with the required power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.
